Five Boroughs Foundation of Photography believes in the advancement of a child's voice
and dreams and the power they have over changing and shaping our society. Photography
is a powerful medium through which children can be creative and capture their world,
their reality, express their views and share them with the rest of us.
Our mission is to introduce photography into the lives of children living in the five
boroughs and allow them to build a greater understanding of themselves, their individual
potential and their backyard, New York City. We achieve this by partnering with schools
and sponsoring after school programs, where we hold short in-class sessions to go over a
mix of practice and theory. We give cameras to the kids and take them out on local field
trips to experiment with their imagination. We share their vision with you through our
website and exhibitions.
