FROM WHERE WE STAND: Photographs from The Stand’s Annual South Side Photo Walk

April 2, 2022 to May 14, 2022


The South Side Newspaper Project, a collaboration of neighborhood residents and Syracuse University, has given voice to the South Side community of Syracuse since its founding in 2010. The annual summer Photo Walk is its largest annual community event, bringing together photographers of all skill levels and ages to explore the South Side, take photos and practice their skills. This exhibition features 51 photographs by 45 photographers taken during this event throughout its 12-year history and is a visual testament to the struggles and resiliency of the neighborhood.

The exhibition includes the winners from the 2020 city wide Photo Contest. Due to the pandemic, the 2020 the Photo Walk ran much differently and opened up citywide. Instead of gathering as a group, participants were asked to document independently in an effort to continue to capture Syracuse neighborhoods in photos, especially during this unique moment in time. In 2021, the South Side Phot Walk returned and the project expanded to also include walks on the North Side, Historic Sedgwick, Downtown and the Southwest Side. Plans are in the works for 2022. Contact THE STAND for details.

This project is made possible in part by funding from the County of Onondaga, administered by CNY Arts.
This project is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
