Join us for a conversation with photographer Dwight Primiano to learn about the specialized process of photographing architectural drawings. When museums and archival collections began acquiring architectural drawings for their institutions, scholars, architects, and building owners needed illustrations or copies. Issues of size, media, line definition, and purpose are among the many questions that architectural drawings pose to a photographer. Get a firsthand look at how this work of great importance to the Wright community is done today.

About the Speaker: Dwight Primiano has over 35 years of experience in photographing architectural drawings and we will travel through time from slides, black and white film, and color transparencies to the current digital studio.
