100cameras X 826NYC Workshop

Pizza + Photography Graduation Party: Students pose with a featured image after receiving their certificates of achievement

100cameras partnered with 826NYC, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting students ages 6-18 with their creative and expository writing skills through workshops and activities and by supporting excellence in school through after-school tutoring programs. 

It was such a delight to work with twelve students for our first ever workshop class. Everyone was energetic, committed, and such outside-the-box thinkers when getting creative with their weekly homework. They even requested that we rename the weekly homework "fun stuff to do at home" for the future, and so we're taking that into consideration.

We've curated a special selection below from hundreds of images taken around their Brooklyn neighborhood, and we couldn't be more impressed (or proud) with how each student uniquely utilized the compositional tools they learned during the course to help document their stories with great passion, individuality, and technique.
