Exhibition of Work by Senior Citizens at the Kips Bay Branch of the New York Public Library

  • Kips Bay Branch - New York Public Library 446 3rd Avenue New York, NY 10016 (map)

In partnership with the New York Public Library, the Josephine Herrick Project presents Connections, an exhibition featuring the work of local senior citizens. Images will be on display through 2019 at the Kips Bay Branch of the New York Public Library (446 Third Avenue, New York, NY, 10016) in the 2nd floor Community Room and can be viewed during regular library hours (M-Th 11am-7pm and F-Sa 10am-5pm).


For eight weeks (in August-September, 2018) these participants met weekly to learn basic techniques in digital photography. Their two-hour sessions often included a walk around the neighborhood as well as peer critiques, helping students develop their visual literacy and engage with their community. In between classes, participants took cameras home with them, documenting the people, places, and things they encounter everyday. The images in this exhibit are an exploration of feelings of connection and separation from the community.
