Birmingham Museums Trust
Photography produced for Birmingham Museums Trust and Special Projects.
There has been a photographic unit based at Birmingham Museum since at least 1920.
Since 2001 the collections of Birmingham Museum have been carefully digitally photographed for a wide range of purposes, from web, conservation and marketing to fine art publications and high end exhibition print media. Captured digitally or by original drum-scanning and digital restoration, these images are superior quality high definition digital files. Archived on the Collections Management digital archive servers, these images number over 120,000 and all are available to view and purchase as digital media or prints via the BM&AG Picture Library.
These works are all from the Modern Art, Applied Art, Fine Art, History, Social History, Archaeology, Ethnographic and Numismatics collections of Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery as well as the BM&AG community museums: Aston Hall, Blakesley Hall, Weoley Castle, Soho House, Sarehole Mill and the Museum of the Jewellery Quarter. We also work with loaned and private collections.
The photographic unit, produces and cares for, highly specialist, professional imaging, video, installation construction, sequential conservation elements and a wide range of other types of media essential to support the organisations exhibitions, special projects and developmental needs. This resource and work is now regarded as some of the best in the U.K. Despite relative little support and funding.
