museum mission

The founding members of the Museum of Modern Photography seek to present one of the finest and most extensive collections of modern photography, which has its roots in the Bauhaus Movement in Europe. The works of prominent photographers from around the world, as well as local master photographers, are represented in the museum’s collection. The museum seeks also to nurture the talent of promising young photographers who will shape the future of the art of modern photography. Through its permanent and traveling exhibitions and professional symposiums and panel discussions, the museum is demonstrating the importance of photography in modern history — enhancing the cultural needs and aspirations of the community and the country.
