Photo and entries by: J.C. 

RTP started a new program with the Creedmoor Psychiatric Center this year.  Sanije Bruncaj, senior recreation therapist started a new photography program called SNAP Talk! (Something New About Photography) Armed with a donated Olympus digital camera, J.C. started his photo journey with a trip to the Queens County Farm,Queens,NY on  3/22/12.  His photo instructor, Sanije, encouraged him to take pictures that made him feel good.

J.C. loved the trip and said “Animals give me an intense feeling to take pictures right away. The best part about these sheep is that they have a beautiful color. When I was next to them, I felt like I was on top of the world. Next time I visit a farm I would love to take more pictures.”

RTP makes a remarkable difference

 

 

 

 

 

 

BLOCK INSTITUTE TESTIMONIAL

“The cameras and instruction that RTP offers makes a remarkable difference to what an organization can offer to its participants’ quality of life. They are no longer defined by their disability but can live up to their full potential. Learning photography teaches them to open their eyes, appreciate, participate and be a partner in the world around them”. Todd Adelman, Director of Special Projects, bit.ly/AnJ7aC
