As the darkroom seems to draw daily closer to obsolescence, The Camera Club of New York has done its small part to counter the trend with its Darkroom Residency Program. The one-year-old program gives jury-chosen photographers the chance to use the club's darkrooms for free for a month. The work of 19 emerging photographers who have participated in the program will be on display at the club's Alfred Lowenherz Gallery beginning Feb. 7. Saks Fifth Avenue is paying a separate tribute to the club, whose members have included Alfred Stieglitz, Paul Strand, and Edward Steichen, in its show windows beginning Feb. 13. Three Saks windows on 5th Avenue and two on 50th Street will house plasma screens displaying photographs from the club's archives.
