Spring Visit to the BDC

This semester our Monday & Tuesday preteen classes recently joined forces for a visit to the Bronx Documentary Center. Photographer Nina Robinson greeted our young photographers and gave them a tour of her exhibit Not Forgotten: An Arkansas Family Album.

Her project explores familial relationships and community in a time of loss and togetherness. At THE POINT we focus a great deal on the importance of community and what that means to our students. Nina discussed her inspiration for heading home with her camera and the experience of being present as a person and as a photographer. The two classes truly came together as one in their curiosities and inquiries. We must thank Nina for being so naturally engaging and connecting with us all!
