The Bronx Senior Photo League (BSPL) is a free photography program of the Bronx Documentary Center for older adults in Bronx.

The goal of the program is to develop participants’ skills in photography while promoting social connection and community pride. Through weekly instruction, assignments, and regular field trips to major cultural institutions such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art and NY Botanical Garden, the program is designed to meet underserved Bronx seniors’ needs for social interaction and improve their quality of life. It provides them challenging and valuable experiences that lead to a stronger sense of confidence, identity and belonging.

The course “Photographing My Life” is led by Teaching Artist, Rhynna M. Santos. Around a hundred works produced during the Winter and Spring 2019 sessions will be presented in outdoor and indoor exhibitions in three locations in South Bronx between June 18-28, 2019.

This program is supported by the Fan Fox & Leslie R. Samuels Foundation and, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
