Josephine Herrick Project’s vision is a world where all have the ability and opportunity to give their point of view in a way that creates and inspires change. Its mission is use photography to support individuals and communities express themselves and influence change in themselves and the world around them through its teaching programs and projects. It works in partnership with organizations, individuals and communities to build the skills and confidence of under-represented communities to document and communicate what they see and what they would like to see.
Founded in 1941, Josephine Herrick Project ("the Project") is an an award-winning service 501(c)3 non profit which offers free photography and community engagement programs to historically disadvantaged and marginalized audiences, taught by professional photographers.
The organization was built around its work with physically and emotionally disabled military veterans in the 1940s. Today, working with Veterans remains at the core of what we do but we also increasingly work with disadvantaged young people and communities, people with disabilities and those whose voices are rarely and/or under-rrepresented and those who rarely have opportunities for free high quality training in photography and creative expression through the arts.
Our funding comes from a variety of sources, government, private foundations, corporations and individual donors.
The Josephine Herrick Project works with a range of national, regional and local organizations in New York City, New York State and beyond to develop creative photography programs tailored to their needs. It initiates and responds to opportunities to build lasting partnerships which impact under-represented communities through its free programs, equipment loans and professional development programs for its photographer teaching artists.
