Important Update on Reopening

Our strategy to reopen ALL San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department recreation sites comes with limitations due to the department’s huge budget deficit from COVID-19 which impacts our staffing decisions on a very broad scale.

We plan to reopen the Harvey Milk Photo Center in some capacity in September after Labor Day. 

We are aware of the strong interest of our members and students to return to the center and anticipate a welcome return of our photo community in the near future. We appreciate your patience as we navigate the competing priorities that the San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department is managing.

Serving the San Francisco community since 1940, the Harvey Milk Photo Center operates the oldest and largest community wet darkroom in the United States. Members also have access to large format printers, film scanning equipment and a full feature digital lab with Adobe software. The Center’s educational program now exceeds 200 classes, workshops, and lectures annually, conducted by working professionals in both fine arts and commercial photography. Scholarships are available for anyone living in San Francisco wishing to take our classes. All exhibitions, lectures, special events and memberships are available to the general public.

The Harvey Milk Photo Center is a part of the San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department. Since 1954, the Center has resided at 50 Scott Street, in the lower level of the Harvey Milk Center for the Arts building at Duboce Park.
