Featuring: Youth photographers in the Bronx Documentary Center Junior Photo League
Students from the Bronx Junior Photo League (BJPL) — the Bronx Documentary Center’s after-school documentary photography program — will share the work they created for “Journeys: Immigration Stories,” on view at Photoville. “Journeys” engaged the BJPL students to explore their communities, families, and environments, and gave them a voice about social justice issues that impact the South Bronx. The students will discuss their experiences working on this semester-long documentary project focused on immigration, including finding subjects, creating relationships, interviewing techniques and editing. Michael Kamber, Founder and Executive Director of the Bronx Documentary Center and BJPL teacher, will moderate the discussion.
The Bronx Junior Photo League is a free after-school photography and journalism program serving middle through high school students at the Bronx Documentary Center (BDC), a non-profit gallery and educational space in the South Bronx.
The Bronx Documentary Center (BDC) is a non-profit gallery and educational space. Through exhibitions, screenings, and public programming, we show the work of internationally-renowned and emerging photographers and filmmakers who are dealing with the themes that guide the BDC: justice, education, community-building, and positive social change. We also provide free education programs for middle and high school students as well as professional education workshops for historically underrepresented adult Bronx-based photographers that provide opportunities for professional development and skills training in photojournalism, filmmaking and documentary photography.
