My profile

“I would love to support you with my know-how, my huge wealth of experience and plenty of enthusiasm for your project. I can attend to your wishes very flexibly and discretely – and rest assured: I will deliver superb results, even for smaller budgets.”

Annette T. Keller

I am an expert in multispectral imaging and have roughly 18 years of experience in the areas of documentation and art diagnosis. Since 2000, I collaborate closely with the Opificio delle Pietre Dure in Florence as well as with many other institutions and museums around the world. I have been fortunate enough to have documented many internationally significant works of art. Since February 2017, I am working with Phase One to develop spectral and multispectral photographic solutions for cultural heritage and forensic investigations.
