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 Junior Photo League

    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

    The Bronx Documentary Center is an accessible, community-oriented gallery and educational space located in Melrose, one of New York City’s fastest-growing neighborhoods. Melrose is the proud home to immigrants from around the globe, including many from the Caribbean, West Africa, Mexico, and South and Central America. To serve the Melrose community, the BDC opens up local discussions through film and photography and provides access to world-class exhibitions and screenings, all the while being fully rooted in the concerns and needs of Bronx residents. Additionally, the BDC not only employs Bronx residents, but also promotes educational programming that empowers our neighbors to tell their own stories. By carving out a unique arts space, the BDC seeks to encourage Bronx residents to participate in the vibrant culture of Melrose and beyond.
