ANALOG COLLECTIVE + COMMUNITY DARKROOM
Founded by seven former volunteers of the late Newspace Center for Photography, The Portland Darkroom is a member-supported community space for the practice of analog photography. Our mission is to keep film photography alive and accessible in Portland.
Located in the historic North Coast Seed Building, PDR is a fully functional analog studio, with darkroom, film processing and scanning capabilities. We are a volunteer-run organization focused on providing a space for the practice of film photography and the community around this work.
