Sombra Projects is proud to present its inaugural exhibition at the New York Photo Festival, a collaborative effort dedicated to showcasing social documentary photography within a fine art aesthetic. Sombra Projects grew out of a network of photographers based primarily in New York City as a way to present personal work and share their experiences. Sombra Projects exists as a compliment to the photographers’ individual endeavors and provides them an opportunity to work together, allowing them to make connections between their diverse experiences and to engage in a conversation to about their lives and, more importantly, the people and places in front of the lens.
