Join us in celebrating our year-end exhibitions by the Bronx Senior Photo League (BSPL), the Bronx Documentary Center’s free documentary photo program for older adults in the Bronx. 

The goal of the program is to develop participants’ skills in photography while promoting social connection and community pride. Through weekly instruction, assignments, and regular field trips to major cultural institutions such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art and NY Botanical Garden, the program is designed to meet underserved Bronx seniors’ needs for social interaction and improve their quality of life. It provides them challenging and valuable experiences that lead to a stronger sense of confidence, identity, and belonging.

The course “Photographing My Life” is led by Teaching Artist, Rhynna M. Santos. Around a hundred works produced during the Winter and Spring 2019 sessions will be presented in outdoor and indoor exhibitions in three locations in the South Bronx between June 18-28, 2019.
