The Halide Project, Philadelphia PA

Bring your traditional analog and alternative process photographic prints to the Halide Project walls and tables for an informal, but serious, group critique. Show and tell, share ideas, and gain feedback from fellow photo colleagues.




Year-round The Halide Project presents a variety of free and low cost programming for photographers of all levels of experience from professional to beginner. Join us to engage in something you love with like-minded analog enthusiasts or learn a new technique in an artist-led workshop.

Past activities have included informal group critiques, artist lectures, book signings, pop-up shows, visits to the PMA Prints, Drawings, and Photographs Study Room, photographer meet-ups in visually compelling locations, and workshops in large format photography, pinhole camera-making, polaroid emulsion lift printing, wet plate collodion tintype, cyanotypes in the park, and more!
