Languages of publication
Basing on experiences derived from many years of cooperation between the Historical Monuments Documentation Centre and photographic division of the Ateliers for Conservation of Cultural Property the authors present the development of a new form of the photographic inventorying survey applied to historical objects whom they have called a „photographic monograph”. Under the above name is to be understood the full and complex photographic survey of an individual object or of a group of historical objects, including all its elements and constituting a complete range of illustrative material relating to a given object, together with its outfit, which, as documentation, is able to meet all requirements and needs that could be put forward by a conservator, an a rt historian or a publisher. While reporting the programme outlines and the works involved in preparing of a „photographic monograph” the authors formulate a number of principles and requirements concerning the preparation of both basic conditions and points of a programme and technical conditions for taking photographs. At the end of their work they postulate the standardization of principles and working methods as well as unification of requirements which should supply a guarantee that, as a result, the photographic documentations will be obtained covering full collections of thematically exhaustive photographs which are characteristic of their high quality and uniform as to their technical values.
