The ICP at THE POINT preteens recently visited the Bronx Documentary Center (BDC), where they had the opportunity to view and discuss the exhibition Flint is a place by Zackary Canepari. Students learned about Canepari’s eight year project on Flint Michigan, focusing specifically on the story of a female boxer there. They also learned about the installation design of the exhibition.
The class also had the chance to meet Jesus Emmanuel, a member of the Bronx Photo League, on his way back from a day of shooting in the neighborhood with his large format camera. They got to go into the backyard with him and experience the 4×5 camera. He demonstrated, giving students the chance to maneuver the camera and the light meter and exposed a couple of images.
