PhotoCorps is all about celebrating neighborhoods and connecting folks through photography.

We’re spending the spring and summer of 2017 exploring Madisonville to make a photo book, and anyone can participate!


Join a Photowalk!

Photowalks are organized to bring together residents and visitors to wander the streets (and trails) of Madisonville. It's a great way to explore the neighborhood and get to know new folks. 

Follow us on Facebook or the email newsletter for future photo walks and photo ops!

The Printed Edition

Who is behind this?
PhotoCorps is made possible by a Haile Fellowship from People's Liberty, which provided a year-long civic sabbatical to research, plan and implement the idea. In this case? The idea was all about getting better at photography and getting to know the neighborhoods and people of Greater Cincinnati. Learn more about PhotoCorps.

The Madisonville Edition would not be possible without help from folks at MCURC and the Madisonville Community Council
