National Maritime Museum, London Comes to The Image Works


The National Maritime Museum collection features images of the history of Britain at sea.

Woodstock, NY, April 15, 2010 --(PR.com)-- The Image Works stock photography agency (http://www.theimageworks.com) has announced the addition of the imagery of the National Maritime Museum, London to their stock photography archive. The National Maritime Museum is made up of three individual museums: the Maritime Galleries, the Royal Observatory and the Queen's House. Together these constitute one museum, the National Maritime Museum, working to illustrate the importance of the sea, ships, time and the stars and their relationship with people.

The National Maritime Museum collection brings the history of Britain at sea to The Image Works stock photography agency. The Museum has the most important holdings in the world on the history of Britain at sea, including maritime art (both British and 17th-century Dutch), cartography, photography, manuscripts including official public records, ship models and plans, scientific and navigational instruments, maritime artifacts, time-keeping and astronomy (based at the Observatory), and in many other categories. The British portraits collection is only exceeded in size by the National Portrait Gallery and its holdings related to Nelson and Cook, among many other individuals, are unrivalled.

The Image Works is an independent editorial stock photography agency in Woodstock, NY. They have unified numerous photographers and specialized collections from around the world into one impressive archive. Their images come from different sources: top notch photojournalists, a network of affiliated agencies, unique collections, museums, and newspapers. Spanning both historical and contemporary material, the result is an incredibly diverse yet focused collection of over one million images online and access to over 35 million images.
