Josephine Herrick Project
Formerly RTP (Rehabilitation Through Photography)

The Josephine Herrick Project is a nonprofit that enlists photographic community volunteers to educate students who have not had the opportunity to learn the communicative power of photography. Through partnerships with local organizations, JHProject’s completely free programs inspire children, teens, adults and seniors with the visual language of photography, enhancing their abilities to transform communities through artistic vision.

Number Series 1 – By Lauren Kupferberg – July 23, 2014

As you view this photographic collage you see numbers from 1 to 50. The mystery behind where these individual numbers come from forces the viewer to look closely at every detail of the photograph finding hints in the background. Even though each number is from a different place, ranging from a mailbox to a house number to a table card, the image comes together. The numbers blend into one photo, the darks of one image is lightened by the image next to it. The numbers pop out in random places, forcing the viewer’s eye to move all around the image, rather than stay on one particular place.  The photograph is the combination of many singular photos that has morphed into one singular photograph.

JHP Celebrates Volunteer Photographers with a Mexican Fiesta & a View!

 Maureen McNeil, Executive Director

Thank You JHP Volunteer Photographers!

On July 16th, the Josephine Herrick Project hosted a Volunteer Photograher Party on the rooftop of the Arabella in New York City.  The rooftop space was provided by our Development Director, Elana Hart.  The weather cooperated and it was a “picture perfect evening” for the gathering. The theme was a “Mexican Fiesta with a View.”  The purpose was to thank our wonderful volunteer photographers for all their hard work! It was also an opportunityfor the volunteer photographers to meet other volunteer photographers and exchange ideas, tips and stories. A great time was had by all!

Here’s a few photos of the event:

The Window Painters

By Lauren Kupferberg – JHP Volunteer – July 15, 2014

At first glance the two men in the photo seem to be washing the windows, but after taking a closer look you can see paint brushes in their hands. The shadows of this print are very defined.  The shadows are both above and beneath the men, but never next to them.  Up close this image holds hidden details from the possessions in the windows to the objects in the man’s hands. “The Window Painters” is one in a series of prints called Windows.

About the photographer

Fiona Guedalia is a recent graduate of Stern College.  She has had a passion for photography since she picked up a camera at fourteen.  She has been published in her school literacy magazines, and had her art hung at her school galleries. She taught a course on photography through JHP, the class stemmed from the University Settlement’s Beacon program, which offers free afterschool and summer programs for children and many other classes for people of all ages. The organization helps those in need have the basic classes that most people take for granted. She taught a class about the inner works of photography, the basic structure of a camera, and the best way to take an image. After she taught her students the ‘how’ of photography, she taught them the ‘why’, her students were told to take a form of photography and put it to action. Now she is taking pictures at events, while maintaining her work as an artist taking pictures of objects and scenes that call to her.
