The Portrait Project

Sponsored by B&H Photo, NYC Salt is showcasing a portrait project of prints and creating an immersive VR experience with 360 video of four students in the environment they shot their portraits in. Additionally, students will be on location throughout Photoville, photographing environmental portraits of exhibit attendees and making prints to add to our onsite container gallery.
