Photography Special Libraries and Museums


[Miyoshi Umeki (Mei Li), Pat Suzuki (Linda Low) and cast members of Flower Drum Song], Digital ID 1811972, New York Public LibraryMy sister just took some amazing photos of me on my aunt's horse, which reminds me just how awesome photography is. I visited the International Center of Photography library near Bryant Park, which has amazing photography books. I have always loved the composition design aspect of photographs, and I took well over 100 photos of my queen and her three orange kittens that I had this spring. Below are some photography libraries and museums that I found.
