Recently developed techniques allow imaging of electronic quantum matter directly at the atomic scale. I will introduce the basic principles and describe the set of observables available from these techniques. As examples, I will survey visualization of exotic forms of electronic quantum matter including heavy fermions, quantum critical electrons, topological surface states, electronic liquid crystals, and high temperature superconductors.
