Photographing a baby Asian elephant for the Museum's Living Worlds exhibition

Manchester Museum, part of the University of Manchester, has a very large and varied collection of taxidermy, on display in a fantastic gallery space.

The gallery has recent gone through a radical makeover, and part of this makeover includes a wonderful iPad and iPhone app, called Living Worlds.

The Centre for Heritage Imaging and Collection Care (CHICC) team was called in to use its expertise and high quality imaging system to photograph the mammal and bird collections to be used as part of the app and for publicity.
