The Life of Buildings - photo what?

As preparatory work continues on The Life of Buildings, an experimental collaborative project with Manchester Metropolitan University and Manchester Central Reference Library's Archives+ to digitally capture Manchester's Jacksons Row Synagogue, this zippy little film has emerged and its all to do with photogrammetry.

Photo what? I hear you yell at your telephone. Photogrammetry... its the use of photography in surveying and mapping to ascertain measurements between objects. The team have been snapping, measuring and even filming from a drone.

These images weren't really intended to be viewed as part of the project but as they give us an extraordinary view inside the synagogue, we thought you might enjoy having a look, so set aside 51 seconds of your day, sit back and press play.
