        The International Photography Hall of Fame and Museum has a new home in St. Louis.

        This Friday it will celebrate its grand opening in Grand Center at 3415 Olive Street.

        It's the culmination of years of planning after the IPHF left its previous home in an Oklahoma City science museum in 2011.

        The IPHF intends to showcase the work of both well-known and up-and-coming photographers.

        The first exhibit is called "The Past, Present and Future of Nature Photography." It includes the work of Peter Dombrovskis, an inductee in the IPHF's Hall of Fame, who focused much of his work on preserving pristine areas in Tasmania.

        Photojournalist Noppadol Paothong, who works for the state's Department of Conservation, also is featured.

        The future of nature photography is represented with images taken by high school scholarship winners from the North American Nature Photography Association and 18-25 year old winners of the National Geographic Young Explorers Grant Program.

        The IPHF has 71 inductees to its Hall of Fame and boasts 30,000 images.

        Those include famous works such as Ansel Adam's "Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico," which is currently on display.

        Yousef Karsh's iconic portrait of Winston Churchill also hangs in a corner with Churchill staring grumpily at the camera.

        Now that the IPHF is finally settled in its new home in St. Louis the organization is ready for the next chapter.
