Penn Lens, otherwise known as the University of Pennsylvania Photographic Society, is the only organization on Penn’s campus dedicated to the photographic medium. We aim to be a community for both hobbyists and professionals of all levels to engage in, learn about, and discuss the art form. Our events, guest speakers, workshops, and annual print showcase in the Fox Art Gallery draw in hundreds of Penn students every year to more fully appreciate and experience the medium. The Photo Division within Penn Lens also serves the unique function of providing photography services to Penn’s student groups. Beyond our initiatives on campus, Penn Lens serves first and foremost as a tight­-knit photography community––a home for any Penn student interested in the art form.
