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.

Volunteer Photography Instructors

Our photographers are an active group of volunteers that donate their time and expertise to our diverse populations in New York area. JHP is looking for experienced photographers that are comfortable teaching the basics of digital photography from a basic academic level to a more advanced level, but that also have patience and flexibility to fit the needs of a sometimes mixed group of individuals with different levels of learning abilities and interest.

Own Jack Reznicki’s Famous Number Series #1 on the new JHP Professional Photographers Gallery Today!

 By Jack Reznicki

Number Series 1 – By Lauren Kupferberg – July 23, 2014

As you view this photographic collage you see numbers from 1 to 50. The mystery behind where these individual numbers come from forces the viewer to look closely at every detail of the photograph finding hints in the background. Even though each number is from a different place, ranging from a mailbox to a house number to a table card, the image comes together. The numbers blend into one photo, the darks of one image is lightened by the image next to it. The numbers pop out in random places, forcing the viewer’s eye to move all around the image, rather than stay on one particular place.  The photograph is the combination of many singular photos that has morphed into one singular photograph.

JHP Celebrates Volunteer Photographers with a Mexican Fiesta & a View!

 Maureen McNeil, Executive Director

Thank You JHP Volunteer Photographers!

On July 16th, the Josephine Herrick Project hosted a Volunteer Photograher Party on the rooftop of the Arabella in New York City.  The rooftop space was provided by our Development Director, Elana Hart.  The weather cooperated and it was a “picture perfect evening” for the gathering. The theme was a “Mexican Fiesta with a View.”  The purpose was to thank our wonderful volunteer photographers for all their hard work! It was also an opportunityfor the volunteer photographers to meet other volunteer photographers and exchange ideas, tips and stories. A great time was had by all!

Here’s a few photos of the event:
