The Museum answers the need for the collection, preservation and exhibition of national photographic values. Its research is directed into the history of Latvian photography as an inseparable and unique component of Latvian ethnic culture and into its role as part of the overall evolution of photography in the world. The permanent exposition and exhibition gallery together with an archive and library facility covers 363 square meters presently. The collection contains photographs, from those produced by historic processes of the 19th century (such as daguerrotypes), to our times; transparencies, negatives, photographic equipment, documents of archival value, books and magazines. Exobition illustrates the growth and development of photography in Latvia from 1839 to 1941, and contains daguerrotypes, ambrotypes, silver-gelatine photographs, and equipment.
