Opening Reception: Bronx Junior Photo League Exhibition


Today, Friday June 3rd at 5pm, please join us at The Bronx Documentary Center for one of my favorite shows: The Bronx Junior Photo League year end exhibition.

This exhibition is the culmination of an intensive yet free after school photography class where the kids, who range from 11 to 18 years, display their photography and multimedia projects.

Through the hardworking volunteers and staff at the BDC, coupled with our youth’s thirst for knowledge, throughout the past several years, they have churned out quality and professional work that’s beyond impressive for their age.

This event is such a wonderful moment where we can see and experience the world around us through the eyes of our children and I can’t stress enough how important it is to come out and support them.

The Bronx Documentary Center is located at 614 Courtlandt Avenue at East 151st Street in Melrose just a couple blocks from the 2 and 5 line at 3rd Ave and 149th Street.

The Bronx Junior Photo League is a free after-school program where Bronx students learn how to utilize the power of documentary photography and storytelling to explore their community.

The class, comprised of 11-18 year-olds from our Bronx community, will be displaying their final photo and multimedia projects at the Bronx Documentary Center on June 3rd.

The Bronx Junior Photo League was taught by Bianca Farrow, Cynthia Rivera, Elias Williams, Kholood Eid, Jon Santiago, Michael Kamber and Groana Melendez.

This program was generously supported by Fujifilm USA.
