The Camera Club of New York celebrates its 125 year anniversary with a group exhibition with artists Marco Breuer, Eric William Carroll, Dan Estabrook, Michael Flomen, Michelle Kloehn, and Chris McCaw.  

Over the decades, CCNY nurtured the craft of many photographers through providing enriching classes, lectures, exhibitions, and residencies. Although countless aesthetic preferences have developed the organization, First Impression reflects upon the medium's own heritage which features contemporary artists that catalyze a current sensibility through the means of archaic methods. The selection of work includes examples of calotypes, tintypes, photograms among others. The collection confirms our understanding and the progress of image making through bridging the gap between the first primitive form, barely but still completely photographic, and the informed modern techinque. By touching upon these shining moments, which provide a well-developed show,  they ensure photographers of any age or industry can continue to benefit from this fascinating marriage together. First Impression will be open to the public for the duration of September and October, and highly recommend you pay a visit.

In conjunction with exhibition, CCNY will host a panel discussion with the artists, moderated by Curator Michael Paris Mazzeo and Russell Lord, recipient of the 2009-2010 Jane and Morgan Whitney Fellowship in the Department of Photographs at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The event will be held on Tuesday, September 22, 7 pm, at the School of Visual Arts Amphitheater, 209 East 23rd Street (between 2nd and 3rd Avenues). Admission is free to SVA students and staff, and CCNY members, $5 for other students, and $10 for the general public.
