It all began in 1998 when photographer Eric Slayton founded the Flat Street Studio and Gallery in Brattleboro, Vermont as a space for photography instruction and gallery exhibitions. Flat Street Gallery became a non-profit organization in 2001, and has since restructured under the name Vermont Center for Photography (VCP.)

With the In-Sight Photography Project as our neighbor, it has allowed us to become an even greater force for promoting the art and craft of photography in southern Vermont.

 

 

The mission of Vermont Center for Photography is to promote the photographic arts through exhibitions and education, and to stimulate dialogue, encourage inquiry, and communicate ideas using the photographic medium as its focus.
