Josephine Herrick Project
Formerly RTP (Rehabilitation Through Photography)
The Josephine Herrick Project is a nonprofit that enlists photographic community volunteers to educate students who have not had the opportunity to learn the communicative power of photography. Through partnerships with local organizations, JHProject’s completely free programs inspire children, teens, adults and seniors with the visual language of photography, enhancing their abilities to transform communities through artistic vision.
Canon Powershot GX1 Digital Camera
By Jackie Augustine – November 19, 2014
Last month’s Photo Plus Show was a great success. We had the opportunity to meet with many old friends and supporters to update them on the amazing year we’ve had at the Josephine Herrick Project. We also go to meet hundreds of people who haven’t heard about our organization and the wonderful work we do creating FREE programs to help our students learn to communicate through the “power of photography.” Our grand prize winner hadn’t heard about JHP before but stopped by our booth at the Photo Plus Show. He was impressed by what he saw and donated by buying a raffle ticket.
Our Grand Prize Winner of the Canon Powershot GX1 Digital Camera is Paul Cheung of North Bergen, NJ. After receiving the news, Paul was very pleased and wrote us a wonderful letter that I would like to share:
“My name is Paul Cheung, a retired marine biologist and fish pathologist at the New York Aquarium, the Wildife Conservation Society. Upon retirment, I picked up photography and had been taking classes at the Senior Center of the University of Seattlement, Allen Street, in New York,
I enjoy beautiful images taken with a camera at different angles and lighting. I came to appreciate artistic photos very much.
The donation I made (to JHP) was very small but I saw the good works that your Project had done, i.e., the young man’s photo album. Your work helps the young people discover themselves through the eyes of the camera. Congratlations for the job well done.”
Sincerely, Paul Cheung
