The Bridgeport Portrait Project is a photo/audio/video documentary style, cultural heritage project that introduces you to the people who are Bridgeport.

It was 1989 . . . Jay & Geralene began photographing the people of Bridgeport. They photographed people with different occupations on Bridgeport’s Main Street. They photographed clients at The Thomas Merton House of Hospitality. They photographed people who had a connection to the shuttered Palace and Majestic theatres in Bridgeport’s downtown.
Since 2014, Jay and Geralene have been working on The Bridgeport Portrait Project. It is an ongoing, documentary style, photography, and storytelling project. The people photographed and the stories they tell, explain why Bridgeport is so much more than just a place.
As for everyone, COVID-19 has minimized Jay and Geralene’s participation in the 2020 Art Trail. Their only real presence is a series of posters in a downtown storefront window at the corner of Fairfield Avenue and Broad Street. Included on one poster are QR Codes, each of which will take you to “stories” from their Bridgeport Portrait Project.
