Panopticon Gallery (est. 1971) is one of the oldest fine art photography galleries in the United States. Located inside Hotel Commonwealth in Boston, MA, Panopticon exhibits contemporary photography by emerging and established photographers from around the globe.
In 1970, Tony Decaneas founded the high quality black and white printing lab, Panopticon with the idea that the lab would fund his personal photography. Building on the success of the lab, he opened Panopticon Gallery inside Hotel Commonwealth one year later. In 2007, Decaneas sold the printing lab (Panopticon Imaging) to Paul Sneyd; and sold the gallery to Jason Landry in 2010. In May 2017, Paul Sneyd purchased the gallery and united the two businesses once more.
