Depending on the extent to which you want to treat the photos as "museum
objects", there is an XML application which we developed conforming to
the widely-used SPECTRUM collections management framework. This
application is being used by lots of museums in the U.K.
It lets you record and analyse content within the photos, as well as
their physical characteristics, copyright situation, etc. Let me know
if you would like a copy of the DTD.
