Society for Photographic Education is a membership organization networking photo-educators, students, photographic industry partners, curators, gallery directors, exhibiting photographers, photojournalists, collectors and critics alike.
The Society for Photographic Education is a nonprofit membership organization that provides a forum for the discussion of photography and related media as a means of creative expression and cultural insight. Through its interdisciplinary programs, services, and publications, the society seeks to promote a broader understanding of the medium in all its forms, and to foster the development of its practice, teaching, scholarship, and criticism.
Although the majority of its 2000+ members are fine art photographers and educators, curators, critics, historians, and artists are also members. SPE is an international nonprofit organization that seeks to promote a wider understanding of photography in all of its forms and to foster the development of its practice, teaching, scholarship, and critical analysis. SPE is headquartered in Cleveland, OH, and the archives are maintained at the Center for Creative Photography in Tucson, AZ.
