Gifts to celebrate

Photos by Catherine Fonseca

There might not have been a Santa Claus, but there was no shortage of gifts.

Stellar photographer Catherine Fonseca, a frequent contributor to The Bronx Free Press, was recently honored with a proclamation for her tireless efforts in photographing the residents and landscapes of the borough.

Fonseca and her work were recognized this past Sat., Jul. 20th at the 6th Annual “Unity Day” Community Block Party by the Office of City Councilmember Joel Rivera, as represented by Chief of Staff Albert Álvarez, together with Annette C. De Jesus, Twin Park Kids Inc. Founder.

The day’s theme was Christmas in July, and children received free toys from multiple organizations and books from Fordham Road Business Improvement District (BID), while families enjoyed presentations from the Ultimate Studios Mixed Martial Arts School.

The proclamation read, “Her pictures educate, motivate, inspire and stir the viewer’s emotion as if they had been there and capture the attention and earned herself the respect and admiration of the Bronx Community by capturing and sharing the images that tell of life in the Bronx. She has demonstrated untiring, devoted and never-ending commitment to the community she cares for.”

Some of the moments captured at “Unity Day” by Fonseca follow.

Congratulations, Catherine!
