Cecile van der Harten
Cecile van der Harten has been the manager of the Image Department at the Rijksmuseum since 2006. She supervises eight photo studios and the Rijksmuseum’s entire photography archive that supplies images to internal and external clients. The Image Department is responsible for the systematic digitization of the Rijksmuseum collection comprised of approximately one million objects. The aim of the Image Department is to have the entire collection digitized online by 2020. A high-quality standards-based workflow and a Digital Asset Management (DAM) system has been established to accomplish this ambition. The Image Department is also responsible for the implementation of a centralized workflow in SharePoint for the museum to order and search images in the DAM system.
She is the project leader for the movement of the Rijksmuseum repository from Lelystad to a new building under construction in Amersfoort called the Collection Center Netherlands (CCNL), which will be shared with the collections from Het Loo Palace National Museum, the Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands and the Holland Open Air Museum in 2019.
In 2015 Cecile organized the first successful international heritage photography conference 2and3D Photography–Practice and Prophecies, in the Rijksmuseum. The “sequel” 2and3D Photography-Practice, Prophecies and Beyond has taken place in May 2017.
