Cambridge Darkroom – The origin. The Cambridge Darkroom was the Eastern region's first and largest gallery devoted to photography and associated arts. Founded in 1984 by a group of local residents who had previously started the first community photographic resource in Cambridge in 1978, it offered a wide variety of shows, ranging from major national touring exhibitions to locally sourced work by individual photographers. In addition, it provided film and print darkroom facilities, available for hire by members, as well as workshops and outreach activities involving local schools and community organisations. It lasted for twenty years, finally closing in 2004, a victim of funding cuts by the major arts organisations that supported it.
