The Permanent Collection

Artifacts from UCR/CMP's Permanent Collection

California Museum of Photography



In its diversity, UCR/CMP collection is the largest, most comprehensive photographic center in the West. This resource is utilized as four inter-linked sub collections: the Bingham Technology Collection, University Print Collection, the UCR/CMP Study Center Library Collection, and the Digital Virtual Collection. The museum's collection provides a foundation for exhibitions and programs examining broad associations between photographic works, the instruments of photography, and society's evolving relationship with the photograph. On view are a sampling of these great collections, which give us a glimpse not only photographic methods and artistry but also the full range of practices that contribute to our growing understanding of visual language and image making.
