Los Mumin! Muumikirjastossa voi Muumimuseon valmistumista odotellessa lukea vaikkapa Muumipapan urotöistä portugaliksi. #muumi #moomin #losmumin #tovejansson #muumikirjasto #muumimuseo #tamperetalo #tampere #visittampere
Aren't they awesome? One is able to take a close look at the Hattifatteners in the tableaux Escape from the Moominvalley with the detail photo taken by museum's photographer. Usually the artworks are in the exhibition behind the glasses or well packed in the storage. So with good documentary (photos) it is easy to reseach the Moomin tableaux and the imaginative work of Tuulikki Pietilä and Tove Jansson.

Blir så glad att se bilderna och filmerna med @thegunilla's mamma. Hon verkar också väl omhändertagen och högt älskad av sin familj. ❤ En kärlek jag känner igen. Igår mumlade mormor något om min mamma när hon skulle äta sin kvällsgröt. Hon tittade ut genom fönstret. Sen ringde vi henne. 👩 👧 👧 När jag skulle gå hem satt mormor och dinglade med benen på toa, och när hon såg mig genom dörrspringan sa hon "pikku kulta" och log. Typ "lilla älskling". ☺❤

A detail from the tableau Flight from Moomin Valley. When a tableaux is being photographed also a lot of pictures of details are taken. Whether the tableau will be stored or displayed it is not possible or at least easy to get a close look at it, so it is very important to have good documentation. Both researchers and conservators need a lot of Moomin photos in their work. #moominmuseum #moomin #tovejansson #tuulikkipietilä #cometinmoominland #tableau #photographer #photography #studiophotography #museum #museumwork #documentary #muumimuseo #muumi #muumipeikkojapyrstötähti #valokuvaus #studiokuvaus #museo #museotyö #valokuvaaja

Taking Moomin photos in the Moomin Museum is not as simple as taking Moomin fan photos. First the photographer has to prepare everything (lights, backround and so on) ready in the studio and get the object in the location - usually with the help of museum technician and conservators - and with the object once more adjust the lights and other details. Then it's time for serious shooting! After which starts the work with the tens of images which means some photoshopping. But the result is definitely worth all the work! Here's the photo of Flight from Moominvalley tableau.
