Hamilton Heights Darkroom (HHD), nestled in Harlem’s historic Hamilton Heights, was built from sweat equity by individuals whose passion is film photography and darkroom printing. This darkroom carries the torch of tradition black and white printing. Before HHD, there were only a handful of darkrooms in New York City, and none in Harlem.
HHD’s mission is to preserve the art of black and white printing using film photography and darkroom printing. Besides offering photography courses for adults, HHD has held summer youth workshops for neighborhood children and children in the shelter system to gain an introduction to darkroom printing. For three consecutive years we have shared our prints with the community and opened our darkroom doors during open studio events.
We are pleased to share our story, and humbly request your help to continue and build on our modest beginning, so we can continue to serve the community. Please help us keep our doors open to the community youth, adults and seniors. We invite you to visit the darkroom, and respectfully request your donation to help us grow and share our passion and skills with the Harlem community.
