Its well equipped darkroom serves a growing community of members, who have access to everything needed to make stunning analog prints.

The Fox Gallery The Fox Gallery, open from August 2016, provides an outlet for emerging and established photographers to share work that deserves to be seen. Works exhibited range from photo documentaries to journals, travel photography and alternative methods. Operating primarily as a rental venue, The Fox Gallery is a platform for artists to further their reach, and to foster public engagement with photography as a powerful and relatable storytelling medium.

I attended a fist workshop at the Fox Darkroom and I was amazed by the place (what a great job they did!) and the people. I'm looking forward to the next workshop and for this coming year as a new member.
