The photographic works in the National Museum of Mexican Art’s Permanent Collection include a variety of media ranging from vintage albumen prints to contemporary laser-generated images. The subject matter spans documentary photographs of 19th-century Mexico and the Mexican Revolution to recent mixed-media assemblages. There are over 700 photos in the museum's collection and a selection is currently searchable online. Check back often as we add to this exciting photographic archive, which is a small subset of our entire Permanent Collection of over 10,000 artworks currently undergoing digitization.
