Founded in 2011, Spaces Corners is a studio and project space based in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. The project serves as an experimental platform to educate and engage the public on important global trends in contemporary photography through a carefully curated bookshop, book exhibitions, presentations and workshops. In 2013, Spaces Corners launched an imprint to further collaborate with artists, institutions and collections.

Spaces Corners is led by Melissa Catanese and Ed Panar. Together, they have curated exhibitions surveying the contemporary photography book and are regular guest critics at Hartford Art School MFA photography program. Melissa and Ed also serve as faculty at Image Text Ithaca, a low-residency MFA program at the intersection of writing and photography.
