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.

Penumbra: ORIGIN mid 17th cent.: modern Latin, from Latin paene ‘almost’ + umbra ‘shadow.’

Our goal is to be a comprehensive resource for photographers at any level; artists, students, professionals, historians, researchers, conservationists and curators who want to learn, practice, and research these photographic arts and processes. We also endeavor to continue to publicize the impact photography has had and continues to have on culture, history and the arts.

We want to develop a community-based organization that will make available our resources to the greater photographic community, general public, members, students, educators, artists, photographers, professionals, like-minded organizations and institutions, and to develop more programs that fulfill our mission.
