Activity

1893 * - 1914 Bruxelles - Ixelles, Chaussée de Wavre, 28 (premises and laboratories)
One of the most active of the autonomous local photography clubs that sprung up in Belgium in the two decades preceding World War I. In 1904, President: Mathy; Secretaries: Strebelle and Van den Putte. In 1909 and 1911, President: J. Navez; Vice-Presidents: E. Strebelle and L. Storck; Secretary: L. Devaivre; Deputy Secretary: J. Francx (1909), A. Lestienne (1911); Treasurer: A. Walleghem. 86 members recorded in 1904, 85 in 1908 and 59 in 1911. It held an annual public exhibition beginning in 1895 until at least its eighteenth edition in 1913. It would appear to be the only Belgian club except for the "Association belge de Photographie" to send a delegate, a certain Ledrux, to the "Congrès international de photographie" that opened in Liège on 16.7.1905. Around 1922, merged with the "Club d'Amateurs Photographes de Belgique" to form the "Cercle d'Art Photographique de Bruxelles".
