The Bronx Junior Photo League, the BDC’s after-school documentary photography program, spent the first months of 2017 interviewing and photographing immigrants in our community. These 12 to 18-year-old Bronx students have created windows into the lives of a Vietnamese nun, a Dominican artist, and an exiled Russian journalist, among others. This work reveals the challenges and triumphs of life in today’s New York City immigrant community.

    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.

    Our free after-school and summer documentary photography programs teach middle and high school students from the Bronx to use photography, writing, and research to explore social justice issues, preparing them for college and future careers. The program includes visits from internationally renowned photographers, field trips to major cultural institutions and media outlets, and opportunities for life-changing national and international travel. BDC Youth Photo League students and their families also participate in extensive college prep programming, which includes one-on-one counseling, financial aid workshops, and college tours. All materials are provided by the BDC.
