Terms governing use, reproduction, and publication

Hilary Stewart, under contract to the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria took all of the black and photographs for the book written by Duff titled “Images: Stone: B.C.: Thirty Centuries of Northwest Coast Indian Sculpture”. The colour photographs in the book were taken by a photographer working for the Vancouver Art Gallery who was not identified or later credited for his work in the publication.

Duff later asked Stewart to take colour slides of the stone images to be used for lecture purposes. The slides are marked “not for publication” and the Museum of Anthropology has copyright to these images. Hilary Stewart has asked to be credited for her work.
