This spring, 15 young people from neighborhoods across Brooklyn were able to participate in a digital photography internship that taught a documentary style of photography focused on issues related to their neighborhoods and self-exploration. The goals of this program were to empower participants, develop their personal voice as artists, and teach them to harness the power of visual storytelling.
The JustArts Photography Internship project was administered by Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC) and funded by New York Councilmember Carlos Menchaca. It is a collaboration between three Brooklyn organizations – The Red Hook Community Justice Center (a project of the Center for Court Innovation/Fund for the City of New York), Brooklyn Arts Council, and United Photo Industries.
