Everyday Bronx @everydaybronx is a Bronx-themed Instagram account with more than 45,000 followers and is part of The Everyday Projects, a global initiative that champions a collective, grassroots form of storytelling. Founded in 2014, Everyday Bronx rewrites the narrative of the Bronx one photo at a time, telling the complex story of the often-overlooked daily life in the Bronx. Rhynna M. Santos, a Puerto Rico-born Bronx Native, leads a five-member volunteer team that posts images every day of the year.
Bronxites tell everyday life stories on the account’s feed, using mostly cellphone photography, portraying a holistic story of life in the Bronx while dispelling common stereotypes.
The Bronx is a center of creativity for fashion and music, and is the birthplace of hip hop. It has a range of vibrant, ethnically diverse neighborhoods, with flourishing music, food and cultural venues. However, the Bronx has often been maligned and neglected.
The importance of Everyday Bronx comes from its homegrown content, which is creating a unique online archive of documentary images of the Bronx. It is the only feed in the Everyday Projects global initiative that exclusively features photographs from its followers, with more than 6,800 posts over the last nine years. By encouraging followers to photograph their neighborhoods, Everyday Bronx fosters artistic expression from a range of individuals, not just trained photographers—if you have a cell phone, you can make art and document the Bronx!
The Bronx Documentary Center
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.
