3 Why photos?

In real life things pass too quickly to take a careful look. We learn more about the shape of something from a fixed image which we can hold in our hand, and without further equipment start to notice other things that we otherwise would not have time to see. When we freeze a particular moment we can also share it with others. 

In over three years we have accumulated over 14,000 individual images.  These photos have been taken from multiple angles and alternate points of view. Frequently they preserve simultaneous records of a place or event.  There are also cases where the photographs record same technique, but in a different cultural geography.

We discover content in comparison.  Some things about a particular action are more likely to appear through differences between two images. Intervals also can be richly rewarding. We can also look for similarities in parallel actions from different countries or cultures. We want to maximize focus but we don’t want to pre-determine what we will find.

Most of the photos in the archive were taken by Professor Jake Harvey, the project’s lead researcher.  Throughout the research travels he also photographed the hands of stone workers and recorded the number of years they had been working with stone.  Even his casual photos tend to reveal unexpected things that later became relevant to our project.

Requests to use these images for scholarly or non-commercial purposes can be made through contacting the website.
