PRC Redux/Voltage/MHC 175

Hello friends! Quick update for you as a few things are going on:

  • The PRC is offering an auction after-sale, so you have another chance to buy a framed print of mine, supporting me AND the PRC at the same time. Click the photo below if you’re interested!

  • Voltage Coffee and Art in Kendall Square will be showing one piece of mine in their all-photo spectacular, Bring Back the Shot. The show runs October 29th – December 12, and the opening is next Friday, November 2nd, from 7p-10p. Coffee, wine, and snacks! Definitely check it out if you can. More deets here.

  • Two weeks until “Workplace” gets its formal debut at Mount Holyoke College as part of their 175th Anniversary celebration! The work will be up November 8th-11th, and the location is TBD.

More soon!

PRC Auction – October 13th!

A month from today is the Photographic Resource Center’s annual benefit auction, and I’m honored to be one of the photographers with a piece in the silent auction. The image is one I shot while shooting for Unrelenting Silence and is a great example of why I shoot the way I do, and why I love shooting with film:

I highly recommend attending the auction if you can as it will be a great evening filled with photography, food and wine, and the excitement of the live auction. Check out photos from last year’s auction (I’m in a few as an art handler!). It’s an event not to be missed!

Wrap-Up/Shout-Outs/On to the Next One

Oh friends, what a crazy time it has been.

The NEPR Showcase has already come and gone. It’s been almost a month since the opening, and in that time I’ve met all sorts of lovely people. I also got a small but awesome mention at the end of the Boston Globe review on August 14th, and an amazing writeup by Liz Devlin of FLUX Boston.

If you missed the show, the virtual tour is now live on the PRC’s Flickr. Go go go!


I would be remiss not to give a shout out to the O’Connells, Anna Martin, Branden Etheridge, and Digital Silver Imaging for helping me with all aspects of the show. I couldn’t have asked for better support. And of course, a huge HUGE thank you to Julie and Erin at the PRC – you ladies knew I could do it all along, and for that, I’m ever grateful.


But as Jay-Z would say, I’m on to the next one:

Mount Holyoke College

During the second week of November I will have the honor of showing work as part of Mount Holyoke College’s 175th Anniversary. I am still finalizing plans, but for more information on the celebration, visit the college’s website here: Mount Holyoke College: Celebrating 175 Years of Women of Influence.

Women in Photography Night at the Photographic Resource Center

I have been volunteering with the Photographic Resource Center (PRC) at Boston University since last October, and have greatly enjoyed the various events and opportunities they offer. The organization truly is one of the best resources for photographers in New England. I was very excited to have the opportunity to share my work at one of their peer-review nights last Thursday. Lisa Kessler, a professor at Endicott College, hosted the night in which I, Leslie Jardine, Barbara Trachtenberg, Paris Visone, and Ryan McMahon shared our work. The conversation was lively, and the work shared showed a wide breadth of photographic interests and the stellar quality of work happening in the Boston area.

Photograping at The Photographic Resource Center

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
