About the Exhibit

Seeing Our El Barrio is a photography exhibition featuring the work of older adults from the Jefferson Houses Neighborhood Senior Center.

They used their new camera skills to document el barrio, capturing their favorite places, historic landmarks, changing seasons, interesting people, and everyday sights, and allowing us to see this dynamic and beautiful neighborhood through the eyes of people who have lived there for decades.

Photo Exhibit Featuring Images from Students at the International High School at LaGuardia Community College

JHP is excited to announce that from April through June you can see TWO of our student photo exhibitions on display at the Citigroup Building located at One Court Square in Long Island City. Both exhibits feature the incredible work of students from the International High School at LaGuardia Community College, who took JHP’s Introduction to Photography and Visual Storytelling course in the Fall of 2018.

There will be an opening reception for both exhibits on Tuesday, April 9th from 3:00-5:00 PM.

Who I Am

This collection of images explores the concept of identity. While learning about composition and lighting, students were asked to take self-portraits and images that represent something about the person who created it.

Seeing in Color and Texture

This collection of images explores is a visual presentation of photographic principles. Each session, students were given a unique composition challenge and asked to explore it in-depth. The colors and textures presented here show what we can find when we slow down, pay attention to details, and learn to see the world differently.

Photo Exhibit: The International High School at Lafayette

The Josephine Herrick Project just wrapped up its first semester at The International High School at Lafayette and we are thrilled to be exhibiting the students’ work at the Ulmer Park Branch of the Brooklyn Public Library. The opening reception will take place on Thursday, February 7th from 4-7pm, but images will be on display in the library’s community room for the month of February during regular library hours (M, W, F 10am-6pm; Tu 10am-8pm; Th 1-8pm; Sa 10am-5pm).

ABOUT THE CLASS

This was inaugural class with The International High School at Lafayette, and we will definitely be back! This talented and energetic group of students met twice a week for an hour to learn the basics of digital photography, while also exploring the surrounding neighborhood. They learned about lighting and composition, and braved the cold weather for a photo field-trip to Coney Island. These students also had the privilege of taking their cameras home each week to photograph their lives, and this intimacy shows in their work. A HUGE thank you to our teachers, Edwin Maldonado and Matthew Hoffman, for making the magic happen each week. We would also like to thank the Pinkerton Foundation, whose generous funding made this program possible.

ABOUT THE INTERNATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL AT LAFAYETTE

The International High School at Lafayette is a small, alternative high school located in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. Its mission is to assist its international population of students in developing their linguistic, intellectual, cultural, and collaborative abilities so that they may become active participants in today’s interdependent world.

PhotoVoice: Reflections - A Step-Up Community Photo Exhibition

The Josephine Herrick Project, in collaboration with the McSilver Institute for Poverty Policy and Research, are pleased to invite you to: PhotoVoice: Reflections, a Step-Up Community Photo Exhibition. The opening reception will take place on Friday, December 7th (6:00-8:00pm) at Argo Tea (75 University Place, New York, NY, 10003). Images will be available for sale and on display through December 2018. Many thanks to Argo Tea for hosting this exhibition and reception.

ABOUT THE EXHIBIT

The images in this exhibition present New York City through the eyes of young people. Over a rainy Election Day and Veteran's Day in 2018, these high school students (from the Bronx and East Harlem) participated in an introductory photography workshop. During their photo walks around the city, students explored the theme of reflection, both literally, as they examined the raindrops and puddles collecting on New York City streets, and figuratively, as they thought about their identities reflected in the images they captured.

ABOUT PHOTOVOICE

In partnership with the McSilver Institute for Poverty Policy and Research, the Josephine Herrick Project leads a 3-day photo intensives for high school students in the Step-Up program. Students learn the basics of operating a digital camera and composing an image, and then apply their new skills by exploring the city around them. As part of the program, PhotoVoice participants come together with students from other high schools to hone their skills, build community, expand their horizons, and share their voices and ideas through the visual language of photography.

ABOUT THE EXHIBIT

For eight weeks (in August-September, 2018) these participants met weekly to learn basic techniques in digital photography.
