As you can imagine the photography collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City is quite extensive.  The collection spans the history of photography from early silver prints of the 1800’s to Polaroids (the first time around) to digital.  But you don’t have to go to New York City to see it.  Given the chance however, that really is the preferred way to see it for so many reasons.  When getting to NYC just isn’t possible though and you need a great photography fix and that is where the online photography collection of MoMA comes in very handy.  With thousands of images available to search through and view you can easily get an online lesson in the history of photography.

In addition to being full of great images, the collection is really well organized.  You can search or just browse.  When you find an image you like all of its vital stats are right there and you can easily find other works by the same photographer.

So next time you’re surfing the internet a stop at the online photography collection of MoMA is well worth it.
