Welcome to the Pennsylvania Center for Photography. We are a non-profit organization that seeks to promote the art and science of photography in all of its diverse aspects.

 

We are aware that there is a problem with the PCP website on some mobile devices and that certain types of links are not working. The issue is that software used to build the site has not been updated by the author in over two years leading to conflicts with current generation mobile operating systems. We have included a work around but it is a bit kludgy and not that attractive as the only way to correct the problem is to recreate the whole site with different software. Obviously, that will take a bit of time so we ask for your patience.

It’s Back!!!

TRANSFORMATIONS 2017

An Exhibition of Imagination

The debate about purity in photography is a longstanding one and has a rich history. However, it has reached new levels of voracity as the use of the transformative graphics software has exploded. Many shows, and even more judges, as well as members of the viewing public have been dismissive of photographs whose basic nature has been altered by the photographer in post production. Well, not anymore!

The TRANSFORMATIONS Exhibition was conceived and is designed to be a showcase solely for the exceptional imagery being created by innovative photographers who use all of the tools available to them. Consider TRANSFORMATIONS to be a home base for your imagination. The entry requirements are simple, if your image was born in a camera, and you have created an image that only existed in your mind’s eye, you can enter it. Long or multiple exposures, pans, infrared, or other techniques are just as welcome as images that took hours in post to create.  

However, and just to be clear, throwing a filter or a texture on a bad picture doesn’t make it a work of art. What TRANSFORMATIONS seeks to do is give the many talented artists creating enhanced imagery a venue to have their work seen by people who applaud and respect the creativity involved. Last year’s show was visually stunning and considered by many visitors to be one of the best show on the East Coast. Well, we expect this year’s to be even better and we can’t wait to see everyone’s exceptional images!

The PCP’s Flickr Page

♦  The PCP has had a Flickr Group for a bit, but we really hadn’t made the most of it. That’s changing and we’ve had a lot of folks join over the last month. People are really beginning to use it to provide a platform where Pennsylvania photographers can come together to share their images, knowledge, and experiences with like-minded people. Please click on this link to our Flickr page to join the group, post images, critique, and start discussions on any photographic topic. Obviously, its success is totally dependent on what we all make of it, so feel free to share the link with friends and members of other photographic groups to which you may belong. Everyone is welcome except Trolls and not-nice people so please join us!
