Photography Project Brings Museum Artifacts To Life

If a picture is worth a thousand words, it stands to reason that a thousand pictures must be worth a million words, right?

The Shelby County Museum & Archives might soon know the answer to that question thanks to help from members of the Shelby County Camera Club.

Camera Club President Ted Vodde and veteran photographer Hank Siegel joined me one morning in October to begin the fun (but tedious) process of photographing the museum’s collection.

Although we only had a few hours that day to devote to the project, the end result was a group of wonderful pictures.

The project is expected to continue into 2017.  The museum is filled with thousands of objects, so the process will take some time.

We will post updates next year, but until then I hope you enjoy the images below!
