Adorama and Canon Support Heart Gallery NYC “Through the Eyes of the Homeless” Project
Two photography-industry companies joined forces to support the Heart Gallery NYC and the NYC Department of Homeless Services initiative “Through the Eyes of the Homeless,” a project that aimed to raise awareness around the lack of affordable housing in NYC through photography.
Adorama and Canon worked together to assist in the initiative’s execution by providing 25 Canon PowerShot G7-X compact digital cameras and photography training to the homeless individuals who participated in the project. Professional Canon photographers mentored 14 current or previously homeless individuals who were asked to photograph the city. The Heart Gallery NYC and NYC Department of Homeless Services said that the photos captured by those individuals show their unique perspectives of New York.
The strongest images captured were then selected for a gallery presentation that will be on display to the public at the Prince George Ballroom in City Hall. The one-day exhibit will be open from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
