Bronx Senior Photo League

Bronx Senior Photo League

The Bronx Senior Photo League (BSPL) is a free photography program for older adults in the Bronx.

The Bronx Senior Photo League (BSPL) is a free photography program for older adults in the Bronx. The goal of the BSPL is to develop participants' skills in photography while promoting social connection and community pride. Through weekly instruction and assignments and regular field trips to such cultural institutions as the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Wave Hill, the program provides older adults challenging and valuable experiences that lead to a stronger sense of belonging and improved quality of life.

Thanks to the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, along with City Council Members Diana Ayala, Fernando Cabrera, and Ruben Diaz, Sr., the BSPL is in residence at: 

Mitchel Senior Center | BSPL Coordinator Rhynna M. Santos

BronxWorks Heights Neighborhood Senior Center | Teaching Artist, Kamal Badhey
Kips Bay Castle Hill Neighborhood Senior Center | Teaching Artist, Jessica Kirkham

The Bronx Senior Photo League is starting a new semester of free photography classes at the Mitchel Senior Center on November 4, 2019. This class is for South Bronx residents living near Mitchel Senior Center. The classes will be held on Mondays 10:30AM - 12:00PM AND Wednesdays 1:30 - 3:00PM.

All experience levels are welcome and cameras and materials are provided by the BDC. Taught by BSPL Coordinator Rhynna M. Santos "Photographing My Life" is an easy and fun class that introduces seniors to the art of digital photography.

This program is supported by the Fan Fox & Leslie R. Samuels Foundation and, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
