David DeGomez is the large format art photography specialist in the Soleri Archives at Arcosanti. He has been an essential part of the archive team for several years. 

Here David works on a custom built rig to photograph an already framed scroll drawing.

The rig has a metal contraption on the top to hold a camera in place.

It has metal hooks, also custom welded, on each of the four feet, to hold the rig in place.

This 16 feet long original scroll drawing was solidly framed many years ago and has traveled to exhibitions all over the world.

Here we can see the partially completed rig in place.

David attached lighting for even distribution. He took progressive portrait photos with this movable contraption and then stitched the photos together for a complete image of the whole scroll.
