The Big Picture
Saturday, May 26, 2012 from 9:00 AM to 8:00 PM (EDT)
New York, NY
The Big Picture is a Photo Education Fair and Fundraiser for 100cameras. The Fair is FREE and OPEN to ALL. Walk through Times Square May 26 2012 with your camera and join us!
The event is a Photography Education Fair and Fundraiser for 100cameras (www.100cameras.org).
100cameras is an organization that takes photography education to underprivileged kids around the world.
The fair will be free for all attendees and will be open to New York City residents and anyone visiting New York City on the day of the fair. On their way out, each visitor will be given the opportunity to donate to 100cameras.
Just like that Science Museum you went to as a kid, the fair will have interactive booths where you will be able to bring your camera to learn various concepts about photography. Attendees will create some amazing images while visiting each booth and will learn how to use their cameras in the process. Each of the three exhibits will focus on one simple but powerful aspect of photography: brightness, aperture and shutter speed. After mastering their new skills, attendees will be able to participate in a photographic scavenger hunt through Times Square, brought to us by CityHunt. Participants who finish the hunt will be placed in a drawing for a JetBlue ticket!
We aim to have 10,000 people pass through the fair.
Our mission is to make photography accessible to everyone on the planet and, for one day, we're focusing on New York City!
100cameras empowers marginalized children to document their lives through photography and to create positive change in their own communities. 100% of the money from the children's purchased prints is used to raise awareness and capital to meet physical needs and empower sustainable growth within their community.
Please visit 100cameras.org for more information about their organization and to see how you can contirbute to changing the lives of children around the world!
