Media uploads are just posts of type *attachment*. So, they're stored in
the posts table and you can use *get_posts*:

The title, caption, and description are stored in standard post fields, but
I don't remember what's what. Do a var_dump of one of the posts you
retrieve (or just poke around your database) to figure it out.

You can get the URL with *wp_get_attachment_url* :

You can get the thumb URL with *wp_get_attachment_thumb_url:*
