Resorts World Casino New York City will display a photography exhibit by the Southeast Queens Camera Club titled “A Queens View” through March 31.

The Southeast Queens Camera Club put together a collection of photos of Queens that feature borough locations through the point of view of its residents. The exhibit is on display at the Casino’s Red Wall Gallery.
The Southeast Queens Camera Club (SEQCC) is currently celebrating its 13th season. The group is a nonprofit that offers educational programs and lectures by distinguished photographers that are designed to engage photographers of all skill levels.

The camera club also participates in an annual art exhibition that is sponsored by the Southern Queens Park Association, and it is a member of the Photographic Federation of Long Island, which consists of 23 camera clubs and has more than 900 members.

The exhibition at Resorts World Casino New York City includes photos by Ron Moore, Doris King, James Fonsville, Saintclair Reide, Algernon Lawrence, Nyree Cyrus, Renee Harper, Helen Dobbins-Bryan, Dianne Heggie and Corona Johnson.

Moore, who is the president of the SEQCC club, has been a member since 2013. He has five photographs featured in the Resorts World exhibit, including “Anglin’ in the Surf” and “Seal in the Sun.”

King, who is also a member of SEQCC, has a featured photograph of Baisley Pond Park. Cyrus, the club’s field trip committee chairwoman, submitted photos of the MoMA PS1 installation “Rockaway! At Fort Tilden” as well as photos of the Marine Parkway–Gil Hodges Memorial Bridge.

The SEQCC holds its meetings on the second, third and fourth Tuesday of every month from September to June. All of the club’s meetings are open to the public and held at Roy Wilkins Park in St. Albans. For more information on the club, visit its website at seqcc.org.

This is the second collaborative exhibit that Resorts World Casino New York City has held with the Southeast Queens Camera Club. Last summer, they worked together on a popular Father’s Day exhibit, “An Ode to Dad.” The gallery is free and open to the public.
