Introduction

Museology is a term photographer Richard Ross helped define. Since 1973, Ross has photographed museums around the globe, both independently and on assignment for Discover Magazine, Scientific American and the Getty. Decades of museum visits and behind-the-scenes access have allowed Ross to create a rich archive of material which documents the changing face of the modern natural history museum. These images visualize key issues in museum studies: curation, conservation, collection, history, and taxonomy display.

The images and interpretive content are delivered to your organization digitally to be printed in-house or by a local vendor. There is no shipping nor insurance cost, and you are able to build an exhibition to work within your parameters of space, time and budget. Our images can be augmented by artifacts and specimens from your collection to reflect the curatorial and research interests of your organization.

In a world of one-click access, we are pleased to offer you a compelling and affordable exhibition that can be customized to the needs and dimensions of your exhibition space:
