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 exhibition will also feature work the students created throughout this year-long program.
The students will present their multimedia pieces at 5PM during the opening reception on Thursday, June 15th.
