Camera Club of New York (CCNY) presents the work of four NYC emerging photographers chosen for its 2013 Darkroom Residency Program: Pierre Le Hors, Lijun “Pixy” Liao, Francesco Palombi, and Brea Souders. Each artist will have a solo show in CCNY’s gallery in the coming year. Selected by a jury, they were chosen to do workspace residencies, based on their exceptional work.

His book Firework Studies was published by Hassla in 2011, and his book, Byways & Through Lines, was published by Dashwood Books, in 2013. Liao, born and reared in Shanghai, has an MFA from U. of Memphis, and has done residencies at Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and Woodstock Center for Photography. She received the En Foco New Works Award in 2012. Palombi, born and reared in Rome, graduated from the ICP General Studies Program in 2012. Souders, from Baltimore, has a BA from the U. of Md. and has had solo shows at Daniel Cooney Fine Art (2013) and the Abrons Art Center (2008).
Camera Club of New York (CCNY), co-founded in 1884 by Alfred Stieglitz, is a rare survivor among New York City arts organizations, and it is as vital now as it ever was. It is experiencing a period of dynamic renewal, and the Darkroom Residency Program is one of its recent successes. With support from the Jerome Foundation, CCNY initiated a new facet of the program in 2013: solo shows in its gallery for each Darkroom Resident. CCNY also presents guest-curated exhibitions, a lecture-series at the School of Visual Arts, an annual Zine and Self-Published Photo Book Fair, and a Conversations series, It offers classes, hosts a Guest Blog, and produces a monthly newsletter.
