Penumbra Foundation


The Penumbra Foundation is a non-profit photographic arts organization whose mission is to bring workshops and greater education, lectures, and events to a diverse and evolving international photographic community. Our scope spans photography from its 19th century invention to the present age.

We are located at the heart of New York City: 36 E 30th Street between Madison and Park Avenues.

Our offices and center on East 30th Street, reside just around the corner from where the famous 291 Gallery created by Alfred Stieglitz was housed.
