On Saturday, July 26, 10 participants set out on The Stand’s Fifth annual Photo Walk.
Photowalking is the act of walking with a camera for the main purpose of taking pictures of things that the photographer may find interesting. It is also a social event organized for the purpose of having fun, improving one’s photography skills and exploring a neighborhood. Often the aim is to practice and improve one’s own photography skills rather than a specific focus on documentary photography.
See the results from this year’s walk below:
The Corcoran High School Class of 2014 received their diplomas Sunday, June 29, at the John H. Mulroy Civic Center.
Redesign discussion centered on three South Side locations
The redesign of Interstate 81 as an opportunity for Syracuse neighbors was a recurring topic at a public forum put together by the Moving People Transportation Coalition on Aug. 19.
“This opportunity could be a transformative time for our city,” said Bob Haley, co-director of the Urban Design Center. “It’s time for residents to reach consensus.”
Reception for From Where We Stand set for Sept. 11
This summer, The Stand offered a new storytelling series — From Where We Stand — in which South Side and West Side residents shared their families’ summer stories through photos. The idea was simple: put real people behind the camera and let them tell their own stories.
Drug users have been and are littering our city with used needles, which have been found along sidewalks, in churchyards and playgrounds, in yards, in piles of raked leaves and under porches of homes where children live. Syringes have been found to carry viruses causing AIDS and hepatitis C. Discarded needles pose a significant health hazard to anyone picking them up, because these viruses can still be active for up to six weeks on a used needle.
