About: Heather Courtney

I'm part of a small team processing the Artist files series of the Harald Szeemann Papers. I have an MA in photographic preservation and collections management from Ryerson University, Toronto. Previously, I was a graduate intern in the Department of Photographs at both the National Gallery of Art, Washington, and at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. My current research interests are in the history of private photographic collections in North America.
