Photography at the Philadelphia Museum of Art

Greetings from Philadelphia! With this virtual exhibition we are pleased to share treasures from our photography collection. This selection of 32 photographs reflects some of our unique strengths and highlights important recent acquisitions. It also includes a number of our hometown artists--from Amelia Van Buren to Ray K. Metzker to Zoe Strauss--who help make Philadelphia a great city for photography.

We hope you enjoy this selection, and are inspired to visit us in the future. We look forward to welcoming visitors back into our galleries in better days ahead.
