The Surinamese Photographers Association, abbreviated SUFOV, was founded on September 29, 1993. For almost 30 years, it has been Suriname's only organization for professional and amateur photographers and hobbyists. SUFOV aims to develop and promote photography in Suriname as well as to promote the interests of its members. Members benefit from a wide range of photography-related activities, including club nights for the exchange of knowledge and ideas, workshops and courses, dissemination of information, outdoor activities and exhibitions. In addition, SUFOV maintains and establishes new relationships with relevant organizations and bodies around the world. The activities associated with the organization of activities are done by members. The board oversees the finances and the activities program. The board is elected, but important decisions are taken during the general meetings. The SUFOV has been participating in the NK exhibitions since 1999. At special moments of the association, the SUFOV organizes her own exhibitions. The participating members via SUFOV are Richenel Coulor, Claudine Mankupranata-Elmont, Andiyo Horne, Cheryll Tjon-A-Ten, Dion Howard and Tanya Frijmersum.
