Elisabeth Boogh is participating in the Collecting Social Photo project, representing the Stockholm County (Läns) Museum in Sweden where she is Collections Strategist, with a focus on digital collecting.
Elisabeth has a background as photographer at different museums but since 2011 her work has focused on developing digital tools and strategies for working inclusive and participatory with collecting in collaboration with the citizens of the Stockholm region. Previously she managed the project Images for the future/Bilder för framtiden (2011-2013) resulting in a set of recommendations on how to collect digital born photography in Sweden. In the CoSoPho project the exploration of collecting the digital has evolved into a broader investigation of the social digital photograph and its consequences for museums and archives working with contemporary photography collections.
Elisabeth’s interest in museums lies in the convergence of inclusive community work, digital media, photography, collecting and collection management.
