Donating Photographs or Archival Materials to the CCP

Since its founding in 1975, the CCP has been dedicated to preserving the history of photography and celebrating the medium as it continues to evolve. With this goal in mind, and largely through the generosity its donors, the CCP has assembled one of the world’s most significant collections of fine print photographs, books, and archival materials related to modern North American photography. Join us as we continue to grow our collection! Your gift of artwork will become part of photography’s enduring legacy at the CCP.

The Center for Creative Photography's fine print collection includes over 100,000 prints, and the Center continues to acquire work through purchase and donation. Dedicated to expanding the history of photography, generating new discourse, and reflecting the rich variety of our communities, CCP established an endowment in 2021 committed to diversifying the collection and acquiring the work of historically underrepresented artists. As the Center approaches its 50th Anniversary, it is critical that the institution focuses on sustainable collecting practices for the next 50 years. To do this work with best practice, CCP is undergoing an assessment of acquisition criteria, staffing, process, and capacity. During this time, the acceptance of donations will be greatly reduced.
