Photarch® is a method where archaeological artifacts are photographed in the same way over a long period of time with the effect that no time has passed between the sessions.
This method was developed by photographer, Daniel Lindskog, during an internship at Kalmar Läns Museum in Sweden. The job conducted of photographing artifacts from the archaeological excavation of Sandby borg. Since the excavation had been going on for a couple of years, and would most likely continue well into the future, a method had to be conceived where the presentation of the objects would look the same, no matter what year of excavation.
This method was later tested in regards to other excavations. The result is most eye-cathing when two or more objects from different geographical places and times of origin are being presented next to each other.
The goal of Photarch is to present more places in the hope of making one beautiful picture of the past.
