The Black and White Photography class will be attending the Contemporary Jewish Museum’s Teen Soiree: Radical Camera on November 20th, 2012 from 7-9pm. The event is free and open to all teens. A 1940s styled event, the evening will include an exhibition of The Radical Camera: New York’s Photo League 1936-1951, youth photographs, swing dancing, and photo shoots. Out of Site’s class will have images on display, and will also have their recent book: Out of Site: Conversations available to view. This event promises to be a lot of fun and will provide a great opportunity for our youth to connect with like-minded peers while showcasing some of their recent works.
