Morrisania exhibit uses photography to highlight importance of family

Posted: Updated:
MORRISANIA -

A new photography exhibit in Morrisania is trying to bring families together.

Nueva Bronx 21st Century Families is the name of the mobile photography unit in Railroad Park that is giving families a chance to participate in a free photo shoot.

The free studio comes courtesy of "Artbuilt" and the New York City Parks Department.

Photographer David Flores won a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to complete the portrait project for the community.

The exhibit aims to show that family stands as the cornerstone of human life.

The studio is normally open Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. It will not be in the park this coming Friday or Saturday, but will be there Sunday.

On Sept. 29, pictures of families will be displayed all throughout the park.
