Project: Identity Photography is a free digital photography intensive for 14-18 year old teens.

This unique 12-week program provides an opportunity to learn the basics of photography, composition, camera use, as well as editing tools in Adobe Photoshop. A culminating photobook and exhibition of artwork will be created and shared with the community.

Participants explore the medium of photography as a conduit for personal expression and storytelling. The group collaborates on a theme for the program and engage in workshops, visits with guest photographers, on and off-site shoots and excursions. Registration is first come, first serve and each registrant will be provided a camera and access to a Mac computer lab for the duration of the program. Photos will be exhibited on site at the Bethel Woods Event Gallery, via the internet/social media throughout the year, in print as well as at local galleries throughout Sullivan County.
