Emma Stower - Archivist

Emma Stower, Archivist for the Henry Moore Archive talks about her experiences over the 30 years she has worked with Moore's Artwork and the related material, including an extensive photographic collection that Moore himself took. The Henry Moore Foundation is based at Perry Green where the Artist set up his Studio, within a 60 acre site with sculpture gardens and purpose built archive store.

Emma talks about the ongoing digitization to improve access to the collection, the experiences of staff working with Moore and his family, and her interest in creating an oral history record of those that knew him closely.
