The Erik James Montgomery Foundation creates photographic public art to inform the entire world about the world they live in. Additionally, the adolescents in our programs learn important strategies to overcome low self-esteem, unrealistic self image and sub-standard academic scores. This is accomplished through short and long-term workshops held at public schools, professional photography studios, correctional facilities, churches and community centers.
Photography is one the most popular art forms in the world today. Over the past 150 years, people were able to learn and discover distant foreign lands, the vastness of outer space and the uniqueness of oneself through the vehicle of photography. Today, with the advancement of technology, photography will continue to be the major form of world communication through art. The Erik James Montgomery Foundation will continue to create platforms throughout the world for people to learn, explore and express themselves through the vehicle of photography.
We give youth and young adults opportunities to explore
the art and business of film and digital photography.
