Bronx Senior Photo League
Dec 14, 2019 | 3pm
Please join the BDC for a panel discussion to celebrate our current exhibition by the Bronx Senior Photo League (BSPL). Students, Carmen Adorno, Mildred Vega, and Maria Meza will be joined by BSPL teachers Rhynna M. Santos and Kamal Badhey.
Since 2017 the Bronx Documentary Center has taught photography to Bronx seniors, members of the Bronx Senior Photo League (BSPL), between the ages of 65 and 90. Our current exhibition of their work presents the Bronx through the eyes of these older adults as they explore family, friendship, and community.
The BSPL provides opportunities for older adults to develop skills in photography while promoting social connections and a sense of belonging within the program and the larger community. The BSPL is designed to meet underserved Bronx seniors’ needs for social interaction while providing opportunities to engage in challenging and valuable experiences that lead to a sense of confidence and a stronger sense of identity and belonging.
