HCP's mission is to increase society's understanding and appreciation of photography and its evolving role in contemporary culture. HCP strives to encourage artists, build audiences, stimulate dialogue, and promote inquiry about photography and related media through education, exhibitions, publications, fellowship programs, and community collaboration.

Since its founding, HCP has earned an international reputation for exhibitions of current and relevant work that have helped to define the state of photography. HCP's exhibitions have included works by some of the most important photographers of the 20th and 21st centuries, as well as the work of many emerging photographers who are now established professionals.

The Houston Center for Photography Member Spotlight program is a bi-monthly showcase of our member artists’ work on our Facebook and Instagram accounts. Every other Tuesday, one member's work is shared with our over 20,000 followers, featuring the talent and creativity of our group of local, national, and international members.
