Additional statement from the Josephine Herrick Project:
"Josephine Herrick Project is a nonprofit organization in New York City that enlists the photographic community to teach photography and educate their students who have not had the opportunity to learn the transformative power of photography.
JHP’s model is to partner with community organizations, veteran centers and schools to teach photography to participants at their locations. JHP teaching artists teach photography, providing participants with lessons in introductory photography, how to create photo projects and develop portfolios, and sharpen their and visual critical analysis tools. At the end of each program, JHP mounts an exhibition of the participant’s work in the community organization, a local gallery or school site, and publishes a book of the participant’s photographs. Participants photograph their communities with the help of professional photographers, promoting advocacy, self-confidence and awareness of the world around them. Through workshops, exhibitions and publications, participants connect to the world through the visual language of photography."
