Epson recently helped out NYC SALT by providing their students with photo-printing solutions for a gallery this past Thursday. NYC SALT is a nonprofit that looks to help out New York City teenagers with visual communication skills by giving them opportunities to experience the professional photography field. They also set out to equip these teens with critical thinking and minds that can solve problems creatively. Epson’s contribution will just further motivate and help the teenagers feel accomplished.

“Epson’s wide-format photo printers provide these students with professional printing equipment, allowing them to get hands on experience creating gallery prints of their own,” said Alicia Hansen, founder, NYC SALT. “We are so grateful to Epson for supporting our students and helping influence the experience and education of future photographers.”

The students were able to use Epson photo paper on Epson Stylus Photo R2000 and R3000 13-inch printers and the Epson Stylus Pro 3880 17-inch printer in creative workshops and for prints for the student gallery. Epson went out of their way to help out, though with such a great and giving program, who wouldn’t want to go out of their way?

“NYC SALT offers kids who might not otherwise have the means to pursue a career in photography the extraordinary opportunity to have hands-on learning experiences in the studio,” said Larry Kaufman, product manager, Professional Imaging, Epson America, Inc. “We are proud to support such an outstanding program that has a lasting impact and helps the majority of its students become the first generation in their families to go to college.”
