In the second phase of our photography project, photographer Neil Greentree and his assistant Bret
Littlehales captured high-resolution images of objects from The Textile Museum collections using a customized boom that could be easily maneuvered to get both overview and detail shots. This pilot project was made possible through the Charles Rumph Photography Fund.
