The second video is about Harry Burton. He worked with Howard Carter, documenting the archaeological findings after the discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun, in 1922. He made his photographs with a large format camera in the harshest and dustiest of conditions. His pictures were recorded on glass plates which had to be developed on site in the Valley of the Kings. His images are of meticulous quality.
