The Asheville Darkroom aims to provide a forum for photographers/photographic artists at all levels, digital or analog, to receive critical feedback. We appeal to individuals using the medium as an artistic process, who will bring questions about their work, and are working within photography (analog or digital), film, video, or other photo-based media. Still photographs should be in printed format, we can provide a computer for motion-based media. All who wish to provide a safe but challenging environment to grow with input from a group of peers, darkroom members or not, are welcome!

Optionally, participants who do not bring work of their own can bring an example of a work of art or artist they would like to discuss, in case we are short on personal artwork. Books/print is preferred. If you are new to critique group, feel free to join us without artwork for your first visit to get an idea of our dialogue.

The first six people to reserve a slot will have their work reviewed, although anyone beyond the six who wants to attend is very much welcomed. To reserve a slot for critique of your work, email us at You can also Like our Facebook page and get in on the discussion for each upcoming critique event.
