MPP is among few libraries in Nepal which archives rare photos. The photo collection is gradually increasing and it has reached up to 15,000 old b/w photographs and around 37,000 new photographs. The collection is further enriched by the contribution from different individuals like Madan Mani Dixit, Hutta Ram Vaidya, Kanak Mani Dixit, Kamal Mani Dixit and many others. The collection not only holds the printed photographs but also the glass plates and celluloid negatives of different size. MPP has digitized around 10,000 old photographs. MPP has been continuously taking photographs of the political graffiti around the Kathmandu valley. These political graffiti include the street arts, political massages/notices, banners, hoarding boards, etc. MPP will put the entire collection online in the near future.
