During the 2019-2020 academic year, a group of English and Photography students at LaGuardia Community College contributed to the archives, by documenting their experiences during the lockdown. Showing remarkable dedication and resilience, the students have created a powerful collection of photographs and writing that explore the internal lives of New Yorkers during the pandemic. During this presentation, we will be joined by several of their students, as we showcase their work and reflect on these tumultuous times.
This event will stream on the Queens Memory Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/queensmemory
To see their work, please check out the Portraits of an Epicenter Digital Book online at LaGuardia & Wagner Archives.
