In November of 1969, the decision was made and Tom Halsted found a great old house in which to start his first gallery. The gallery started dedicated primarily to the education of the public about fine art photography and as awareness grew, so did the gallery. In the early days, Tom had personal relationships with some of the masters of photography such as Ansel Adams, Imogen Cunningham, Harry Callahan, Andre' Kertesz and many others. There were even many instances in which photographers such as Berenice Abbott had to ask Tom how she should price her photographs. A glimpse at many of these relationships can be seen in the letters and photos in the news portion of this site. In 1980, Tom participated in the founding of the AIPAD organization and was also one of its first presidents. Years later, his daughter Wendy served as a board member. With the advent of the internet and the Fine Art exhibitions, things have changed. The gallery is now open to people from allover the world at a touch of a button or a quick plane trip.
Today, The Halsted Gallery is still dedicated to the education and promotion of fine art photography, encompassing the 19th and 20th centuries as well as contemporary photography. The Gallery still emphasizes photographs from 1900-1950, but also embraces newer contemporary photographers. We invite you to visit us either in person, on the web or at one of the many shows we participate in throughout the country.
The Detroit Center for Contemporary Photography brings together a community of people interested in photography and lens-based work. DCCP is a nonprofit 501 c3 organization that currently offers exhibitions and lectures to bring a deeper appreciation and understanding of photography to our community. DCCP will promote contemporary photography and provide a vital cultural resource to Detroit's communities. Founded in 2010 as a visual artists organization, DCCP began as a member-run cooperation the governing board of which includes physicians, lawyers, educators, photographers and gallery owners and was incorporated as nonprofit organization the same year. Originally located in downtown Pontiac, DCCP has recently opened a new 4000 sq. ft. gallery space in Detroits Russell Industrial Center. Future fundraising efforts will benefit workshops, publications, and community education; eventual renovation of DCCPs space will include a library, which will house photography-related books and journals, and a formal reception space. DCCP seeks to broaden its outreach among Detroits diverse communities through exhibitions and programming through the medium of community collaboration with local institutions.
