  • Description

Seeing Here Now is a photography workshop series for military veterans. As non-partisan outreach to the veterans’ community in and around New York City the free weekly workshops offer participants the opportunity to express themselves visually as well as to explore the basics of photography and collaborative art in a welcoming community of fellow veterans. The program encourages participants as valued individual artists and image-makers telling their unique stories, within which exists a framework for the facilitation of successful military reintegration back into civilian life. Each artist has an individual story. As individuals, their image-making and artistic process is uniquely their own. Some channel difficult emotions into creative works of art, while others turn the ordinary into the beautiful or the complex, simply because they now “see” with greater appreciation. Seeing Here Now is led each week at the International Center of Photography by visual artist Erica Leone, who founded the program in 2010.
