To celebrate the occasion, an opening reception will be held on June 27, 2019 with the works of 25 local photographers on display in the gallery’s first public exhibition.
NYC-SPC’s mission is to share the art of street photography with an underserved community in New York City. Contact Gallery is a space where this mission will be filled with life, as an educational space for people to exhibit, learn, and share work.

About the NYC Street Photography Collective
NYC-SPC, a non-profit 501(c)3, is a collective made up of a small group of passionate street photographers that are dedicated to creating and sharing the art of capturing life in public spaces. The group was founded by Jorge Garcia in early 2015.
We offer members and anyone who is interested in the genre an opportunity to explore street photography with like minded individuals through engagement with a local community that shares resources and promotes individual’s work. We also regularly produce zines as well as organize exhibitions, talks, and events to highlight photographs from our members or talented photographers we discover.
