New York City Street Photography Collective
NYC-SPC, a non-profit 501(c)3, is a collective made up of a small group of passionate street photographers that are dedicated to creating and sharing the art of capturing life in public spaces. The group was founded by Jorge Garcia in early 2015.
Our mission is to share the art of street photography with an underservedcommunity in NYC by establishing a gallery and educational space for people to exhibit, learn, and share work. NYC-SPC is dedicated to advancing the understanding and appreciation of contemporary street photography.
Our vision is to foster a community for those interested in street photography where they can share work, teach, learn, and inspire others.
What We Do:
Since 2015. critique meetings are held monthly and open to anyone interested in street photography. Meetings give individuals the chance to share work, experiences, techniques, and whatever else helps people advance as street photographers.
We offer members and anyone who is interested in the genre an opportunity to explore street photography with like minded individuals through engagement with a local community that shares resources and promotes individual’s work. We also regularly produce zines as well as organize exhibitions, talks, and events to highlight photographs from our members or talented photographers we discover.
Board of Directors
Membership is through an annual nomination process and portfolio review. Current members nominate an emerging nyc based photographer that they feel has brought value to the community and has demonstrated an eagerness to contribute to the collective. We invite the individual to submite a porfolio and current members vote. We do not invite individuals based on their work alone and limit the selection process to local photographers actively making street photographs.
