Increasing society’s understanding and appreciation of photography
Houston Center for Photography is an organization dedicated to the art of photography.
Starting in 1981 as a small visual artists’ organization, HCP has grown to become an exemplary fine art organization. Our gallery—free to the public—features some of the finest works of contemporary photography. HCP also offers over 300 photography classes and workshops year-round. Varying in competency levels, these classes are all taught by esteemed photographers and lecturers, including some of the masters of the medium. If you have an interest in photography, then we encourage you to join our vibrant, supportive and ever-growing community by becoming a member.
Houston Center for Photography’s mission is to increase society’s understanding and appreciation of photography and its evolving role in contemporary culture. We strive to encourage artists, build audiences, stimulate dialogue, and promote inquiry about photography and related media through education, exhibitions, publications, fellowship programs, and community collaboration.
Houston Center for Photography began as a member and artist-run cooperative in 1981 and was officially incorporated as a nonprofit organization in 1982.
Its mission has always been to promote the art and practice of photography in all its forms through various programs that take place both on and off-site our museum district facility. HCP conforms to the kunsthalle tradition of a professionally managed, permanent institution that exhibits but does not collect works of art.
