In 1955, the same year that the Montgomery Bus Boycott began and Jet Magazine published the polarizing photograph of the tortured and mutilated body of 14 year old Chicagoan, Emmett Till, a collective of African American photographers on Chicago’s South Side formed the Washington Park Camera Club. Committed to documenting their neighborhoods, families, and the changing social economic landscape, the club established a legacy rooted in community and love for photography. Since their charter in 1961, the Washington Park Camera Club has provided a forum on the South Side where residents interested in photography can meet, learn, and explore different aspects of the art while increasing their knowledge of the medium. This eclectic collection of images showcases the work of current Washington Park Camera Club members. Highlighting the varied interests, themes, and subjects that make the camera club such a unique and important community of artists.
