Since 2008, the Baxter St at CCNY Workspace Residency Program has provided participating artists with three (3) months of free access to the International Center of Photography’s darkrooms, digital work stations, and shooting studio as well as the scanning stations at Baxter St (prior to 2014, all access was in-house at The Camera Club of New York’s old 37th street location).


The Baxter St at CCNY Workspace Residency Program is made possible by generous support from Fujifilm; Kodak; Awagami Factory; public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council; New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; and The Jerome Foundation.
