Part of the Inside Out Project, the worldwide grassroots exhibit of large-scale graffiti murals tackling social justice and human rights issues, black and white portraits of people are currently hanging on the brick walls outside Central Harlem’s Minisink Townhouse.
"If they shoot, and they don't know who they are shooting at, and they see us young kids outside of Minisink Townhouse, they'll think twice about shooting," said Sixth Grader Christian Houston to a NY1 reporter who was at the Townhouse for the unveiling of the photos.
Education Director Vee Bravo also touched on why he wanted our Fellows to be involved. "It made sense for our curriculum to bring in still photography, to slow things up a bit, and get the kids to reflect, to look at pictures, talk to the person on the other side of the camera.”
