Visions Made Visible

Soho Photo Gallery Community Programs

We believe photography empowers people and communities to see the world more vividly and make their personal visions seen. To share photography with the diverse communities, we create and host special exhibitions, internship programs, speakers, and other special events. We also offer opportunities for subsidized membership.
