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.

“The PRC’s Global Health in Focus project focuses on three of the greatest health challenges the world community faces today: HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and access to clean water. 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.”

Wednesday, February 22, 2012 at 6:30 pm
Admission: $10 General public | $5 Members & Students

Vicki Goldberg, one of the leading voices in the field of photography criticism, will discuss how and why American women photographers, most prominently Cindy Sherman and Nan Goldin, came to the attention of the photography world in the late 1970s and early 1980s after lurking on the fringes for a long time. She will also examine the way the principle concerns of that first crop of important women artists, including the entire appropriation movement, have persisted to the present day and continue to influence photographers.”

December 1st, Boston: Opening Reception and Artist Talk by Janelle Lynch

Janelle Lynch, Los Jardines de México

Thursday, December 1, 2011
Artist Talk at 5:30 pm
Opening Reception from 6:30 to 8:00pm

Janelle Lynch‘s photographs in her recent title, Los Jardines de México explore themes related to the life cycle and its representations in the urban and rural landscape. Made between 2002 and 2007, each project investigates, if not embraces, a specific facet of existence: loss, death, regeneration, and life. The exhibition is comprised of four series: El Jardín de Juegos, serving as her first project upon moving to Mexico City; Donde Andaba, juxtaposing wild plant life with architecture; Akna, anthropomorphizing tree stumps in a nature reserve; and La Fosa Común, focusing on a functioning, century-old common grave centrally located within the city. The combination of these four bodies of work, three from Mexico City and one from Chiapas, examines the persistence of life. ”
