Mission Statement

The Detroit Center for Contemporary Photography (DCCP) is a non-profit, 501 c3, organization that brings together a community of people interested in photography and lens-based media. Its mission is to foster the appreciation and understanding of photography by promoting contemporary lens-based artists. DCCP strives to foster creative discourse and a visual understanding of the still and moving frame by offering lectures, workshops, and exhibitions. DCCP seeks to broaden its outreach among Detroit’s diverse communities through exhibitions and programming in collaboration with local institutions.

In its efforts to provide innovative means of representing new and interesting work DCCP has recently launched three online galleries. The Collection, New Directions, and Frame/s are continually updated and aim to highlight the work of emerging lens-based artists. By embracing developments in digital media DCCP will continue to function as a vital cultural resource that extends beyond Detroit’s city limit.

Description

Originally located in downtown Pontiac, DCCP was founded in 2010 as a, member-run, visual artists organization. The original governing board included physicians, lawyers, educators, photographers, and gallery owners. DCCP continues to embrace these cross-professional collaborations as a means of expanding not only its audience, but also the resources provided to its members.
