Bed Stuy Story is an experiment in storytelling that will community-source a photographic archive of Bedford Stuyvesant. From Spike Lee to Jay-Z, Bed-Stuy has been the muse of noteworthy tastemakers that have given the world a window into her charm. We want to show what’s happening now. All photographic mediums are welcome – 35 mm, digital, Instagram, Polaroid, pinhole, etc. Subjects can be interiors, people, landscapes, fashion, or whatever your lens sees in Bed-Stuy. It’s all good.

The archive will be accessible to the public through a flat file system held at the gallery, on our web site, and at our annual exhibition. A portion of the proceeds will be reinvested into community gardens in Bed-Stuy.

Photographers selected will be announced on Friday January 11th. Click here to begin the application process.
