Dauguma nuotraukų atspindi profesoriaus siekį užfiksuoti paminklą taip, kad matytųsi jis visas, jo detalės ir jį supanti aplinka, kuri tyrėjui suteikia papildomos informacijos. Fotografijose „įrašyta“ vaizdinė informacija ir metrikose pateikiami duomenys daro Miliaus fotografijas vertingu dokumentu kryždirbystės tyrimams. [Iš leidinio]

ENThe article focuses on prof. Vacys Milius’ photographs capturing the heritage of cross crafting. The author of the article regards an object as a documentary source and shows what kind of information is inscribed in photographic images and recorded in their descriptions. The photographs by prof. Milius have a documentary character. The majority of photographs reflect the professors aim to capture a monument with all its details, as well as its surroundings that provide additional information. That is why he often took more than one shot of the same monument. This kind of presentation is the most informative: it clearly shows the monument itself, its form and surroundings, as well as separate details (e.g., sculpture, inscriptions and symbols). When capturing objects of cross crafting, Milius did not aim to create photographic art - he regarded photography above all as a means to document the existing heritage and create the visual memory of a certain cultural phenomenon. He did not seek to make the monuments look more beautiful and was interested not only in magnificent examples. He not only captured decaying and abandoned early monuments, but also documented the efforts to preserve them and the continuing cross-crafting tradition - newly built monuments.The visual information on the cross-crafting tradition (continuing construction of memorial monuments; restoration of early monuments; artistic expression; material condition) contained in Milius’s photographs is supplemented by the meticulously collected data on the intentions of erecting a monument, its authors, commissioners, rituals and customs presented in the photograph descriptions. This visual information and the information in the descriptions increase the scientific value of the photographs and make the photographs by Milius a valuable document for the research on cross crafting.
