Collection Data

The Camera Club of New York was founded in 1888 by a group of photographers who broke away from the Society of Amateur Photographers. Throughout the twentieth century, the Camera Club remained true to its objective of focusing on scientific applications of photography, at the same time incorporating new programs for its members such as holding photography classes for senior citizens. The Camera Club attracted both amateur photographers and those who became wellknown professionals, such as Alfred Stieglitz. During the last decade of the twentieth century, the Camera Club has continued to be a vital organization.
