SDN is 10! Celebrate with us this October.

We are having an exhibition and party to celebrate the dedicated and diverse community of documentary photographers that make up the SDN community. We wouldn't exist without you! Our public debut was at PDN Photo Plus Expo in 2008 where we presented the SDN website with six live exhibits. Today--ten years later-- we have presented more than 3,000 documentary exhibits on the website by 2,000 photographers from across the globe.

Featuring music by James Lovell and the Afrigarifuna Music Ambassadors

James Lovell

James Lovell is a passionate educator, activist, multi-instrumentalist and ardent language conservationist. Through his artistic and pedagogical endeavors he works to safeguard Garifuna music, dance and language.

James co-founded Illagulei (Roots), a performing arts company which promotes indigenous Garifuna culture from Central America. James has released four albums, created the “Afri-Garifuna Rhythms” and the Afri-Garifuna Jazz Ensemble and developed a teaching method that uses music to transmit culture which was implemented under UNESCO. He teaches Garifuna workshops in St Vincent, Belize and New York; he is frequently featured in the media and performs at the United Nations and the Smithsonian.
