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.
