Raffaella Losito is a multidisciplinary creative, driven by a passion for cultural heritage. The focus of her work is digital preservation, promotion and enjoyment of heritage assets – combining the fields of archive photography and graphic design.

She has collaborated on several large-scale digitisation projects within the UL, including the Polonsky Foundation Greek Manuscripts Project.

Prior to joining Cambridge University Library in 2020, she worked at the Ashmolean Museum of Oxford as a Project Photographer for the Italian Drawings Project.

In personal practice, she is interested in how new media can interact with analogue productions, creating new visual interpretations and storytelling of art collections.
