July 2014 News: The Camera Club of New York


2013 Auction
2013 Benefit Auction at Affirmation Arts. Photo by Azikiwe Mohammed.

CCNY is very pleased to announce that we have begun a new agreement with the International Center of Photography that allows our workspace members to use ICP’s color and black and white darkrooms, 7 days a week.

We have moved out of our former location in the Arts Building at 336 W. 37th St. and will reopen in a new location by early September where we will continue to present exhibitions, the Conversations series, the Zine and Self-Published Photo Book Fair, and hold classes, while still sharing darkrooms at ICP. ICP is also now providing analog and digital workspace for our Darkroom Residency Program.
