The Site of Vernon D. Miller’s 1978 Photographs of the Shroud of Turin
Section 6: Color Transparencies Ultraviolet Light 4 x 5
Background & Discussion
For photo location within the Shroud, go to the Shroud GridPhoto in the tab below.
Section six contains 59 photos including 6 black and white UV photos, the descriptive photo and the grid for location.
The 4 x 5 color transparencies below were done under ultraviolet light for the purpose of studying the blood, image, water, burn marks, and the background of the Shroud cloth. Interspersed among these UV photos are white light photos (WL) for comparison. Black and white negatives taken under UV light were done for the purpose of pursuing a more extensive study of the blood marks, exudates (lighter serum lines around the blood marks) and wounds (scourge marks, etc,). See group I, 8. As a result, the photos in this section bring out other details of the blood marks and wounds of the Man of the Shroud. Vernon’s UV light photographs add a whole new visual dimension in the pursuit of the study of the Shroud.
