Gallery Showing in NYC: Artists for Advocacy
So the exciting news that I want to share with you guys is that the work I did in the South Bronx last month will be featured at a gallery here in New York City on May 15th hosted by CACF (Coalition for Asian American Children & Families). My work, along with 7 other photographers' work, will be shown at Collective Hardware, located on Bowery between Delancey st. and Broome st.
The aim of the night is to raise awareness for social justice issues around the world and locally. The work that I have done in the South Bronx involves rebuilding a dilapidated 100-year old church that is in the middle of the nation's poorest congressional district. Over the years, as the neighborhood started to decline, so did the church. But JUMP Ministries in partnership with NYCUP is trying to rebuild the church so that it can be used as a youth center for the kids in the neighborhood that are part of its ministry.
The work I show will be available for sale and all the proceeds from the sales will be going to CACF, NYCUP, and JUMP ministries.
Here's two of the photos that will be shown at the gallery
