1-2pm (UK) / 3-4pm (Egypt)

Tiny Egypt is a photographic project that takes a closer look at the more diminutive artefacts from Ancient Egypt and explores their beauty that's often too small for the naked eye.

In this talk, Julia will take you on a tour of her favourite images of artefacts from Manchester Museum, The Garstang Museum of Archaeology, and Bolton Libraries and Museum to show you how she uses macro photography and focus stacking to create stunning images. You'll also hear about other techniques, such as dramatic lighting and lightboxes, to produce images that have been featured in exhibitions such as the Garstang Museum's Book of the Dead: Passport through the Underworld and Manchester Museum's globally touring Golden Mummies of Egypt.

Julia Thorne is a Liverpool-based photographer with a BA and postgraduate diploma in Egyptology from the University of Liverpool and is now partnering with museums around northwest England to explore Egyptian objects with her camera. When not hidden away in museum stores with her camera, she can be found exploring other heritage spots (always with camera in hand), reading a Stephen King, or playing The Legend of Zelda games on her trusty Nintendo Switch.
