This year’s 2and3D Photography is slimmed down and moved online due to corona. We will host three online sessions with four 20-minute presentations followed by a Q&A.


For this edition we are especially interested in how the pandemic has influenced your daily work. Have you been able to continue working or has it given you more time to spend researching ?

For this online edition we want to focus on a selection of our regular topics:

  • 3D Applications for cultural heritage: added value, sustainability, interoperability
  • Color management: 3D, UV, IR, 360
  • Science: conservation, preservation, scientific demands, artificial intelligence

Throwback: 2019 edition

The third edition of the 2and3D Photography conference in 2019 demonstrated how important it is to create a meeting place for the international heritage photography community. In a time when technological digital developments change rapidly, it is essential to have a platform where we can exchange knowledge and ideas. 2and3D Photography provides this platform and distinguishes itself from other conferences by exclusively focusing on the cultural heritage image professional, for and by people active in the field. You can read all about the third edition of 2and3D Photography 2019 in our online magazine.


The online-conference is organized by the Rijksmuseum in cooperation with the Association for Historical and Fine Art Photography (AHFAP).
