Photography Works is a yearlong program that provides 10 students who have a serious interest in photography with in-depth instruction and mentoring.
During the program, they visit working photographers and artists in their studios and have the opportunity to assist in teaching youth classes or assisting on photo shoots. They gain advanced camera skills with unlimited access to CEPA’s darkroom, digital photo lab, and studio space as they explore related careers and interact with professionals. They also received Canon Rebel cameras that they get to keep.
Students were meant to have a final exhibition of their work at CEPA Gallery, but due to COVID-19 and the uncertainty around when CEPA might be able to open, you can view their photos on bus shelters throughout the city. See a brief video of the bus stops.
