Fall Visit to the BDC

On Wednesday, our two teen classes joined forces to visit the Bronx Documentary Center (BDC) to see Eugene Richards’ exhibition Below the Line: Living Poor in America. BDC Founder Mike Kamber gave our students a comprehensive introduction to the BDC, showing them the exhibition space and photo library, as well as introducing his own work. Our students even had the opportunity to meet Eugene and hear about his work. It was an exciting first field trip for the fall term!
