PORTRAIT OF PATERSON
PATERSON YOUTH PHOTOGRAPHY PROJECT
 

 



Forty-five color prints by young photographers in the Paterson Youth Photography Project, ages 9 to 14, are on view in the Broadway & LRC Galleries, July 16 through September 15, 2008.

The mission of the Paterson Youth Photography Project (PYPP) is to enrich the lives of school age children in Paterson by introducing them to photography as a means for self-expression and an opportunity for personal growth.  The goal of PYPP is to teach photography to school age children in Paterson – in a classroom, in the field, and as part of an organized mentoring program.  By mastering both artistic and technical skills, children gain a sense of hope for their futures.  By learning from adult mentors they gain one-on-one attention and positive role models.

The results of the PYPP program and the efforts of the talented young photographers who participate in it can be seen in this remarkable exhibit.
