How can I filter media by author

I set up wordpress 2.9.2 in such a fashion that any subscriber has "contributor" role and can add media to the site.

What I want to do is for each contributor to only display the media uploaded by that contributor. In other words, in the backend if the contributor is logged in and clicks on Media I want to "filter" the results by author where author is the logged in user. At the same time i want the administrator role to be able to see all media so as to be able to delete explicit content.

I have some php experience but have no idea where to start looking to build this "filter".

Thanks in advance

this is a WordPress issue, not a theme issue - you are talking about getting into the guts of the WordPress code. I suggest you go to http://wordpress.org and open a thread there.
