National Media Museum blog

We explore the science, technology and art of the still and moving image, and its impact on our lives.

Meet the authors

While we’re part of a wider group of Museums which includes the Science Museum in London, the National Railway Museum in York and the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester, we are a small and friendly team here at the National Media Museum.

This blog is written by our staff, with the occasional guest author. Here’s a little bit more about us.

I’m a film festival & events producer by day and somewhat of a bookworm the rest of the time. I’m partial to a spot of cultural activity and have been known to offer up an opinion or two every now and again!

    Dear all,
    Great to see these stories and beautiful images. I like to now your policy on the use of the images that are posted here. Can we use them for publishing in articles Y/N and what are the conditions?
    Actually I should like to use the daguerreotype image of Beards studio in a publication dedicated to the daguerreotype.
    Hope to hear from you,
    thanks and best regards,

      Hello Herman

      It really depends whether this is a commercial use or not. Please get in touch with the Science and Society Picture Library, and let them know you’re interested in using an image you’ve spotted on this blog – they will be able to discuss your needs and agree some terms of use for your publication.

      Best wishes,
