The majority of this 10,000-plus piece collection is comprised of the Janos Scholz Collection of 19th-century European photographs, which includes some fine early prints by Henry Talbot Fox, David Octavius Hill, Robert Adamson, Gustave Le Gray, Julia Margaret Cameron, Robert MacPherson, and other pioneers of the art form. Other specialty areas include the Civil War and the exploration of the American West.

The Museum continues to annually acquire prints thanks to the generosity of Milly and Fritz Kaeser, and other donors.

Recent acquisitions include images by Eugène Atget, Eadweard Muybridge, Timothy O'Sullivan, Doris Ulmann, Frederick Sommer and Lauren Greenfield.
