In 2008 Vernon Miller gave his Shroud collection to Tom D’Muhala. In 2012, the cataloging of Vernon Miller’s entire scientific photographic collection from the 1978 study of the Shroud of Turin was accomplished. This project required the help of many wonderful volunteers. The initial work (done by Tom D’Muhala and Gilbert Lavoie, both of whom have extensively studied the Shroud and were colleagues of Vernon Miller) was to determine the contents of each container of photos so that the photographs could then be organized and placed into a filing system. Once the filing system was complete, digitalization of the photos began (also done by D’Muhala and Lavoie).
In 1978 Vernon Miller used the most professional cameras of that era with the best of lenses. For example, he used a large format camera from National Geographic and his own Hasselblad camera, which produced the highest quality photos available. The technology used to reproduce (digitalize) his original images was also of the highest quality, a Hasselblad Camera (H4D-50 MS). This camera has captured the full dimensions of his original photos.
The project of organizing the data for the website (also done by D’Muhala and Lavoie) was started in 2015. The website was completed in 2019. This website allows anyone to enjoy the experience of seeing the Shroud of Turin in the same way that Vernon Miller saw it through his camera lens. His magnificent extensive collection is now available to the public.
