Voices Of Harlem - NYC Bridge Project

If you were a photographer in New York on election day, chances are you were in Harlem. Not me though, I was fast asleep in front of the TV. Anyway, among the photographers who actually worked on that day were Danny Peralta and Bashira Webb, who I had the pleasure of working with on a project earlier this year through the ICP community programs.

They recently sent me this video piece entitled 'Voices of Harlem' in which they worked with student photographers to record the thoughts of Harlem residents on election day.

This video is part of a broader enterprise called the NYC Bridge Project which is a 'collaborative of photographers working to instill the spirit of storytelling to a new generation of photographers who normally would never have access to photography. As these young storytellers grow as conscious journalists they become mentors to a newer generation of storytellers.'

Check out the video on youtube here.

And Kudos to Danny and Bashira for passing on the knowledge.
