James Stevenson

Photographic Manager
Victoria & Albert Museum
Cromwell Road
South Kensington London
SW7 2RL United Kingdom

James Stevenson is the Photographic Manager of the Victoria and Albert Museum. He has responsibility for the management of all image creation within the museum and the exploitation of those images via the Picture Library. James Stevenson has been at the V&A for over ten years where he has managed the change from a traditional analogue service to a modern where electronic cataloguing and image creation is becoming the norm. A direct result of his management is the growing emphasis on a more creative approach to museum imagery where the contribution of the photographer directly relates to the understanding of the object by their creative input. He has installed a colour management system for controlling all of the museums image creation. James Stevenson was previously at the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich as Chief Photographer. He has been employed as a photographer since 1974.

James will present New Ways To Search, Navigate And Use Multimedia Museum Collections over the Web.
