July 21 - August 20, 2011

Opening reception: Thursday, July 21, 6:30 - 8 p.m.


Elizabeth Libert, The Libert Family, Cambridge, Archival Inkjet Print.


Juror Whitney Johnson, Director of Photography at The New Yorker, selected work by ten contemporary photographers from across North America to comprise the sixteenth iteration of the PRC's highly regarded annual juried exhibition. She made her selection from an original pool of 170 submissions.


The artists featured in EXPOSURE 2011 take a strong interest in the human condition. Probing portraits, vibrant social interactions, historically-inflected landscapes, and provocative situations are all present in Johnson's selections. The placement of each project encourages the viewer to find connections between the artists' subjects. Although the show encompasses wildly different stylistic approaches, each project flirts with documentary photography, shedding light on the human experience in unique ways. However, the photographers seem more intent on introspection, discovery, and questioning than pointing out conditions in need of change.

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
For more information & to register >>


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.

Center Notes


George Slade Returns to Minnesota    

George Slade, PRC Program Manager and Curator, left the PRC in early July to return full time to his native Minnesota. George moved to Boston in May 2010 to take on the position as the PRC curator. He came here with an immense knowledge of photography as an independent writer, curator, blogger, and formerly serving as the artistic director of the Minnesota Center for Photography. He quickly became familiar with the New England photography community through portfolio reviews and meetings with photographers throughout the region. In the year that he was at the PRC, he was instrumental in launching Loupe, the new PRC magazine, and re-launching NEO, the online gallery that had been discontinued for over a year before George and PRC Executive Director Glenn Ruga redesigned the new incarnation of this monthly gallery of work by New England photographers that went live in October 2011. George also helped to start the new program of Nights at the PRC, informal monthly meetings of photographers to look at and critique each other's work. Slade's achievements also included reaching out to all of the PRC's institutional member schools to create the largest and most successful Student Exhibition this past spring.
