Autograph is looking for a Full Time Archive Manager to help undertake a programme of work to catalogue and care for their unique photographic collection, as well as assess the potential to achieve accreditation.
Since its foundation in 1988, Autograph has been collecting and archiving material which reflects its mission to use photography to explore questions of cultural identity, representation, social justice and human rights. Autograph's archive contains digital and analogue assets dating from the 1860s to current day and includes work commissioned from significant contemporary artists and photographers. The archive features the work of renowned fine art practitioners, social documentary photographers, vernacular family photography and high street studio portraiture, material around the Windrush generation as well as the earliest examples of black people photographed in the UK during the Victorian era.
Do you have strong technical and practical project management experience of managing and caring for culturally significant archive assets? This could be your opportunity to work with a collection covering key periods in the formation of diasporic communities in Britain, including circa 5,000 prints, more than 10,000 negatives, and several thousand digital and analogue contact sheets (plus related ephemera), and a large digital archive.
Deadline for applications: Friday 4 May 2018 by 5pm.
