All artists are students of Riverdale Avenue Middle School, located in Brooklyn, New York.

This project is based on the diversity of New York City’s student population. Students used their portraits, and through a hands-on, cut-and-paste process, mixed parts of their faces in order to create a hybrid “person.” The idea behind this work is to reflect all the diversity within New York City, and show that we are really one people.
Kostas Kiritsis is an artist and educator. The above project was created in the spring of 2022.
Riverdale Avenue Middle School
Founded in 2011 in Brooklyn, NY, Photoville was built on the principles of addressing cultural equity and inclusion, which we are always striving for, by ensuring that the artists we exhibit are diverse in gender, class, and race.
In pursuit of its mission, Photoville produces an annual, city-wide open air photography festival in New York City, a wide range of free educational community initiatives, and a nationwide program of public art exhibitions.
By activating public spaces, amplifying visual storytellers, and creating unique and highly innovative exhibition and programming environments, we join the cause of nurturing a new lens of representation.
Through creative partnerships with festivals, city agencies, and other nonprofit organizations, Photoville offers visual storytellers, educators, and students financial support, mentorship, and promotional & production resources, on a range of exhibition opportunities.
