BRONX JUNIOR PHOTO LEAGUE @ Bronx Documentary Center

Bernard Smith, founder of Stop the Violence, lost both his 19-year-old son and 32-year-old nephew to gun violence in 2000. Shortly after they were killed, Smith started the Bronx-based organization in order to raise awareness about the violence and loss of life within the community.

“The Bronx Junior Photo League advanced high school class is comprised of students who have been a part of the BJPL for a year or more or have relevant photo experience. This past spring the advanced BJPL students collaborated on a large-scale class project documenting Bronx activists. Working in small teams, students took turns photographing, interviewing and producing portrait sessions, ultimately creating silver gelatin prints in the darkroom and writing profiles on each subject. The students profiled activists from 17 to 70-years-old—men and women who have fought for social justice in the South Bronx since the 1970s and continue to fight for it in their schools and communities today.”
