About Us

Located in historic Hamilton Heights, Hamilton Heights Darkroom (HHD) is dedicated to the preservation of traditional darkroom printing and film photography. Students use film cameras, and print from negatives in the darkroom as a basis to learn photography. HHD offers photography basics and darkroom printing for youth, teens and adult printers, from beginner level to advanced.

As darkrooms, photography and public school arts programs disappear, HHD offers to preserve both culture and photography in the Harlem community. HHD offers group printing classes, photography classes (film and digital) and discussion about current photography issues in a collegiate setting. HHD collaborates with local community arts and culture organizations seeking youth and adults interested in photography.
