June 7th, Boston: Opening Reception for PRC EXPOSURE 2012

Photographic Resource Center
Opening Reception: EXPOSURE 2012
Thursday, June 7, 2012, 6:30-8:00 pm

“The PRC’s esteemed annual juried exhibition, EXPOSURE, honors emerging photographers from across North America by providing a venue to celebrate their work in a group show. Since its inception in 1996, over 300 photographers have displayed their images on the PRC’s gallery walls. Each year, a respected member of the New England art community — from curators to gallerists to photo editors — is asked to select ten to fifteen standout artists from a pool of several hundred. Each artist then shows five to ten photographs, adding up to a truly interesting exhibit each year.

From a submission pool of 270 photographers, this year’s juror Alison Nordström, Curator of Photographs and Director of Exhibitions at George Eastman House, selected the following ten artists for inclusion in EXPOSURE 2012:

Mary Ellen Bartley (Wainscott, NY)
Thomas Brennan (Hinesburg, VT)
Nan Brown (Quincy, CA)
Odette England (Providence, RI)
Tony Loreti (Belmont, MA)
Mark Lyon (Marlboro, NY)
Robert Moran (Bar Harbor, ME)
Garie Waltzer (Cleveland Heights, OH)
David Wolf (San Francisco, CA)
Diana Zlatanovski (Arlington, MA)”

The exhibition will be on view until July 18, 2012.  Congratulations to the selected artists.

This project aims to educate our New England community about these critical global health issues, utilizing documentary photography to offer direct insight into the individuals and communities affected. The panel discussion, along with the exhibition, will lead to a greater understanding of the challenges and possible solutions to global health problems, particularly the work of Boston-based institutions.

The overarching goal of “Why Global Health Matters” is to bridge the arts, journalism, and medical communities by analyzing the ongoing universal concerns communicated in the exhibition and publication. By organizing and presenting this project, the PRC serves as a resource not only for photographers but for professionals in the healthcare, human rights, and public policy fields, as well as demonstrating the power of the photographic image.”
