July NEO: Don Feeney   


Don Feeney, Hiroshima Day (Enlisted Men's Barracks, Ft. Andrews, Boston, MA), August 2009.


"I photograph the past as it exists in the present, as though it were a dream of the future."    --Don Feeney


Don Feeney's photographs of barracks, batteries, mine casemates, generators, and powder rooms (not that kind of powder) along the ocean shores of Massachusetts and Rhode Island benefit from both, and gain weight from the photographer's clear commitment to seeing the symbolism clearly and empathizing with the duty and lives committed to these bellicose structures.

Lori Waselchuk: Grace Before Dying

Closing Saturday, July 9, 2011

PRC Gallery, 832 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston.

Calvin Dumas helps turn George Alexander in his bed, Angola State Prison, Louisiana.

Lori Waselchuk is a photographer based in Philadelphia, but she has a special level of dedication to people in the state of Louisiana. Her work in Grace Before Dying concentrates on a prisoner-run hospice program at Louisiana State Penitentiary located in Angola. The prison has a large percentage of inmates serving life sentences; nearly three-quarters of its 5,000 residents will leave the prison only upon their deaths. Waselchuk gained unique access to a program that has transformed lives. Her panoramic black-and-white prints record the heightened sensitivities that this ground-breaking program has instilled in a very tough world.

All the World is a Stage: Costa's Boston

Street Photography Workshop with Magnum Photographer Constantine Manos

September 8-12, 2011
Workshop fee: $810 PRC members / $850 general public


Learn or perfect urban street photography in Boston with world-renowned Magnum photographer Constantine Manos. The city of Boston is your stage to explore, but let the master critique your creative images. Manos will conduct this five-day workshop exclusively for the PRC September 8-12, 2011.

Manos has developed an international reputation as a pioneer street photographer, using the standard tools of the trade-a small-format camera and a wide angle lens-to explore the most intimate moments and the most visually compelling portraits of the cacophony of humanity played out on public thoroughfares. Manos' unique vision borrows from the intelligence and formal structure of Cartier-Bresson, the humor of Winogrand, and the critique of Frank to bring us beautiful, insightful, and structurally complex frames of his world.
