Before the curators at the International Spy Museum could build a world-renowned center for espionage history, they needed images—lots of images. They also needed an easy and efficient way to look up their licensing agreements long after their exhibits were in place.
PhotoAssist spent two years stealthily researching more than 1,000 rare and specialized pictures, documents, and drawings. The museum brought us photocopies and pages torn out of books, and we tracked down an amazing array of images—including a photo from a camera mounted on a World War II reconnaissance pigeon.
Our meticulous catalog system makes it simple for the museum staff to re-use its thousands of artifacts and images in books, exhibitions, and educational materials. Through our rights clearance and documentation work, the International Spy Museum continues to cast new light on the shadow world of spies—while staying on the right side of the law.
