Founded in 2001, our Photo Urbanism program offers fellowships to local photographers to create a new body of work illuminating the public spaces of NYC. Our current PE Fellow, Elliott Golden is a photographer, educator, and public health professional based in Brooklyn, NY. He is interested in photography as a tool that can help orient us to otherwise invisible social structures and relationships. In his collaborative practice, Elliott has partnered with New York City Community-Based Organizations such as Good Shepherd Services, the Center for Urban Pedagogy, Red Hook Community Justice Center, and L.E.A.R.N. I.T. Learn more about Elliot's work using photography as a tool for public health and community development alongside the Restorative City project.


Loulou Bradshaw (she/her) is an Afro-Caribbean American queer creative based in Brooklyn, New York. Her interest in photography started at a young age, but through time and experience, her passion has grown immensely. Her approach can be defined by her dynamic and intimate style of portraiture. Loulou's excitement about photography is most heightened when she is allowed the opportunity to capture genuine moments that provoke emotion in the viewers of her work.

Bradley Mota (he/him) is an artist, photographer and documentarian. He was born and raised in Elmhurst, Queens where he discovered his passion for photography while traversing the streets of the city in his early teenage years. As an observer of spaces and the ever-changing skyline, he became interested in capturing the stories of the struggles and realities of those living in NYC. Having lived through the pandemic at its epicenter, his current work is a combination of reality and escapism. As time progressed, not only did his art style evolve, but so did the medium through which he documented history and himself. Bradley's current mediums include film (35 mm) and primarily polaroid instant film (SX-70).

Myron Mitchell (he/him) is a New York City based photographer practicing for over three years. His interest in photography sprouted from his love of exploring and creating things. Currently, Myron captures landscapes, urban areas, and occasionally portraits. His style can be described as moody, and sometimes leans toward cinematic imagery.

Taiwo Oladipupo's (he/him) passion for photography stems from his love for science, picturing abstract things and being able to preserve stories for future generations to look at. He first decided to pursue photography seriously through his experience looking through a microscopic lens. Taiwo's work with NeON Photography has helped drive his inquisitiveness, enhancing both his photography skills and his scientific curiosities.

Photo Urbanism is made possible New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
