A Celebration of the Caregiver Community: Portraits and Biographies by Bridget Badore

Photographer and social media coordinator Bridget Badore captured the community focus of New York City’s 14th Street Y in a wonderfully uplifting gallery exhibition hosted at the downtown Manhattan recreation center.

“A Celebration of the Caregiver Community: Portraits and Biographies by Bridget Badore” offered a window into the diverse cultural backgrounds of the caregivers who play such a vital role in the lives of families and individuals. Captivated by the intimacy that the camera lends her, Badore—who has been featured as a selection in American Photography 32 and participated in the Daniel Cooney Fine Art emerging artists auction—allows her subjects to be vulnerable and honest.

“It is with enormous appreciation and gratitude that the exhibit shares the compassionate, generous, nurturing, devoted, and resourceful lives of these dedicated individuals who provide support here at the 14th Street Y and beyond,” the Y wrote. “The inspiration for this exhibit came through a 2017 Prelude to Preschool Discussion Group. Caregivers in the group expressed interest in being featured in the 14Y Gallery after seeing the ‘Portraits of the 14th Street Y’ exhibit by Bridget Badore earlier that year. We are thrilled that their idea has come to fruition.”

Duggal Visual Solutions sponsored the show with 15 high-definition photo prints produced through our online store ShopDuggal. We gave the Y a special code to enter, allowing them to upload the images at their convenience and place a fully comped order with just a few clicks. As a New York-based company, we were more than happy to deliver the prints to 14th Street with a smile. See the photos and read the stories of 14Y’s caretakers here.
