History of Photographica
The Photographica Show and Auction is the largest event of its kind in New England—a full-day celebration of mostly classic analog photography. The first Trade Show took place just six months after PHSNE’s founding in 1973, and this popular event continues to attract visitors, collectors, dealers, buyers, and sellers from New England, across the country and around the world.
PHSNE members, students, and the public can browse and buy images, antique and modern film cameras, lenses, and other photographic equipment and ephemera from the 19th-century to the present day. Just one day this year – don’t miss this show!
