Visual Diaries is a photography workshop designed to engage older adults in creative expression through the process of learning and discussing documentary photography funded through the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs Su Casa Initiative. Three Su Casa awards enabled The Creative Center to bring this program to Stein Senior Center, St. Peter's Senior Center and University Settlement Neighborhood Senior Center. Through practice, observation, and discussion senior participants learned how to see the details, corners, shadows and light in art and in their own lives. Creative Center photography instructor Janis Lewin created a supportive environment in which participants of all skill levels experimented, played and built mastery and confidence. Below are some selected works from our 2018 program.
