PRSUN Project: PR Parade

Image
One of my favorite times of the year in New York City is Puerto Rican Parade season. It is not just because of the parade. It is also because of the festivities that lead up to the parade. This year I attended such events as the Gracie Mansion reception that Mayor Bill di Blasio and NYC Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito hosted, the parade's 152nd Street Festival in the Bronx, and the Abrazo Boricua reception at Maestro Caterers in the Bronx.

PRSUN Photo Team's Eileen McNamee at the PR Day Parade

This was the second year Eileen McNamee covered the National Puerto Rican Day Parade as part of the PRSUN photo team. Our team was working on a photo project to document the 2012 parade through the lens of a diverse team of photographers and photojournalists. This was the third year PRSUN curated an online group exhibit. All team members received official press passes from the National Puerto Rican Day Parade to cover the June 10 parade from their perspective for PRSUN. Eileen is a science teacher. She says she has found creativity between the arts and sciences. Her photography is mostly from the Bronx where she lives. She especially enjoys concentrating on the nature and history of the Bronx. But from time to time, she likes to go out to document a colorful parade.
