Digital Image Resources (DIR) is a division of the Department of Intellectual Property which photographs, houses and maintains the Museum’s photographic archive collection including documentary photography in both analog and digital formats of objects, events, galleries, and people relating to the Museum.
DIR’s goal is to convey the MFA collection to the public through visual documentation and the authorized use of text and images for the purposes of reproduction and distribution while protecting the integrity of the MFA’s intellectual property.
