Bronx Documentary Center celebrates 10 years of youth photography program with new exhibit
For a decade, young people have been capturing the essence of the Bronx and bringing it to life through photos featured at the Bronx Documentary Center. Now, it's all on display.
The exhibit at the BDC is called "Through Our Eyes: Youth Photography at the Bronx Documentary Center." Over 60 photos are hanging on the walls, showing everyday life around the neighborhoods of the Bronx from 2013 to now.
There are also award-winning images that have received honors and also have appeared in festivals all the way as far as Paris. Some of the work has been featured in the New York Times.
The BDC's Youth Photo League is a free program that more than 400 students have participated in since 2013.
To celebrate 10 years of the youth program at the BDC, they have released a photo book that includes photos in the exhibit and much more. There is a special discount for Bronx residents.
