Virtual Tour | New Visions: Activism Through the Lens
March 19, 2020 - April 11, 2020
Denise Bibro Fine Art, in Chelsea, NYC, in collaboration with Seeing for Ourselves is pleased to announce New Visions: Activism Through the Lens, its second exhibition at the gallery, the highlights of the Department of Probation’s (DOP’s) Neighborhood Opportunity Network (NeON) photography program.
Provided to New Yorkers serving probation and their neighbors, the twelve-week course—conducted by the participatory photography non-profit Seeing for Ourselves (SFO)—imparts a marketable skill while encouraging participants to express themselves and share their stories through photography. Four million Americans have found themselves under this form of community supervision, the sanction poorly understood by the general public.
The exhibit features photography by those residing in the seven underserved communities that a large portion of DOP’s clients call home: The South Bronx, Harlem, Bedford-Stuyvesant, East New York, Brownsville, South Jamaica, and Northern Staten Island.
Photography, 13 x 20 inches
Edition of 100
