Professional Women Photographers Student Exhibition

As many learned yesterday, Calumet Photo has closed it's US stores. We'd built a strong relationship with Calumet, as they were not only in the photography industry, but also our neighbors and friends. Located just across the street on West 22nd in Manhattan, our two stores always did what we could to help out one another, whether it be through the store or the rental department. We are very sorry to see them go. 

Due to the untimely closing, we've been trying to help out the Calumet customers, and, thankfully, the Professional Women Photographers group. This Saturday, from 4:30 to 6:00pm, the PWP Student Exhibition (featuring the work of high school girls throughout the northeast. The theme is self-portraits!) was set to take place at Calumet, but we've been able to move the exhibition to our rental department.  

Details from the PWP event page:
