Kyohei Abe

Executive Director, Detroit Center for Contemporary Photography

Kyohei Abe is the Executive Director of the Detroit Center for Contemporary Photography (DCCP). Established in 2010, DCCP began as the first non-profit center dedicated exclusively to contemporary photography in Detroit.   

With a mission to foster the appreciation and understanding of photography, DCCP works to promote contemporary lens-based artists who explore the medium in diverse ways: from still and time-based media to the photographic book. In 2012, after reevaluating how to better serve the artists it strives to support, DCCP shifted its operation to a solely online gallery supplemented by small edition artist book publications.
