The Portland Darkroom
Tuesday, October 31, 2017
A group of former Newspace Center for Photography volunteers got together after the abrupt closure of the non-profit DIY photo space. While processing the blow to the photo community we've managed to open a new darkroom/reproduction space that is functional and inclusive.
We've been overwhelmed by the support from our community and want to thank those invested in these types of workspaces! We've relied on your help and would love to spread the word further to those who are unaware. To properly do the space justice we're continuing to fundraise for a few more days. Please check out our kickstarter page and see what we're up to.
Eventually PDR wants to host an artist in residence program for working photographers who need some serious decompression time. This will be a great place to make a book. It will also give individuals the oppurtunity they need to scan and process film.
If you're ever passing through Portland don't hesitate to reach out as we'd love to share the space!
