Photography Class at Gateway: Empathy 101
Project info

Gateway Counseling Center in the Bronx caters to adults with developmental disabilities such as Down's Syndrome, Severe Autism, Cerebral Palsy, and many more. For the past two and a half years I have been teaching photography at Gateway as a therapeutic and artistic outlet. By teaching the basics of photography the students learn how to work together to create works of art they can be proud of and use to break down empathy barriers between themselves and the community at large.
