New to Town

The International Photography Hall of Fame is moving to St. Louis’ Grand Center with its collection of 30,000 historical images and 6,000 vintage cameras. Scheduled to open in March 2013, the 6,000-sq.-ft. space will feature two galleries— one with vintage and historical photo exhibits, and the other with contemporary exhibits. There will also be an event space, library and gift shop. Board President John Nagel says the IPHF and St. Louis are a perfect fit. The St. Louis Camera Club is the largest and second oldest club in the nation, and area schools show a major investment in photography education. The IPHF “hopes to become a clearinghouse of information between all of them and give them some unity,” says Nagel.
