Our Approach

The Michigan Photographic Historical Society (MiPHS) was originally organized in 1972. In 1973, it was chartered as a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation by the State of Michigan.

MiPHS conducts occasional meetings with speakers, films, slides, demonstrations or displays in addition to an annual dinner meeting. Other events now include the TWO photographica shows. All meetings are open to the public. Four times a year, the Society publishes its newsletter, The Photogram. Interested individuals are invited to become members.

Over the past several years, MiPHS has also assisted the Detroit Historical Museum in the identification of their old cameras, cosponsored an exhibition catalog for the Michigan Historical Museum and sponsored the play "Brady of Broadway." Individual members of the Society have authored books on photographica and presented papers at international conferences.
