As a museum specializing in all aspects of photography, Tokyo Photographic Art Museum’s activities include collecting, displaying, preserving, studying, and popularizing photography.

The museum acts as a center for supporting creativity in exploring the expressive possibilities of photography and recognizing artists with potential.

To popularize the art and culture of photography, the museum is an open facility offering everyone the opportunity to appreciate and study outstanding photographic works and actively use the museum’s facilities.

The museum gathers information on photography and conducts research on photography and on visual imaging more broadly.

While functioning as a center for photography in Japan, the museum also serves as a focal point for international exchanges.

In addition to workshops and other participatory programs, the museum, as a facility supporting individuals’ creative activities, promotes opportunities for broad-based and international exchanges between photographers and the public.

The museum’s aims are to explore a wide range of expressive possibilities and to study the history of the development of visual media.
