One of my side projects as of late has been photographing and volunteering at events for the Photographic Resource Center at Boston University. If you’re unfamiliar with the organization, I highly recommend browsing their website as they offer a fantastic range of photography-related events and resources. Within the last month I photographed an informal critique on street photography, a lecture on collecting photography, and a lecture by photographer Catherine Wagner.
Click on the photos below for many more photos from each event, and definitely check out their website and list of events!
Street Night – September 28, 2011
“These free, informally structured programs foster a sense of community with photographers, PRC members, and students by offering an opportunity to share images and insights about particular topics in contemporary photographic practice. Presenters bring prints or show images on their own laptops, and are asked to make a brief statement about their work.” – PRC website
Vintage and Modern: Workshop on Collecting Photography with Alice Zimet – October 13, 2011
“Alice Zimet conducted this fun, social, and informative workshop focusing on collecting photography, with a particular spotlight on the PRC 2011 Benefit Auction pieces. Karen Haas, the Lane Collection Curator of Photographs at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, led a tour of highlights from the live auction.
Attendees gained a greater understanding of the photography marketplace and the proper tools to become thoughtful photography collectors.” – PRC
Catherine Wagner: Photographs and Public Projects – October 19, 2011
“Catherine Wagner presented the last thirty years of her work, concentrating on projects of the last decade.” – PRC
