Nancy Fulton: A Tapestry of Seasons

neo fulton
Estival no. 01

Most photographers struggle dearly to hold their cameras still as they press the shutter release-Fulton, a registered architect, watercolorist, and photographer, does anything but that. A Tapestry of Seasons investigates time and change; both are continuous as we travel through the year.

Janelle Lynch: Los Jardines de México

November 29, 2011 - January 28, 2012 



Janelle Lynch, Untitled 7, from the series El Jardin de Juegos.


The photographs in 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.

Photographs by Kristen Ashburn, Dominic Chavez, and David Rochkind 
February 9 - March 24, 2012  
Panel Discussion: Wednesday, March 7, 6 pm
BU George Sherman Union Conference Auditorium, 775 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston
Reception: Wednesday, March 7, 7:30 - 9 pm

David Rochkind, Mumbai, India. A doctor visits a patient at the Group of TB Hospitals in Mumbai during daily rounds.
Through arresting images, photographers Kristen Ashburn, Dominic Chavez, and David Rochkind document the heavy toll that global health issues take on the developing world. Their poignant photographs invite us beyond the grim, faceless statistics and bring us in close contact with people-mothers, fathers, children-confronted by enormous hardship. 




Willard Traub: Recovery

February 9 - March 24, 2012
Reception: Wednesday, March 7, 7:30 - 9 pm
PRC Gallery, 832 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston


Williard Traub, Recovery 1, 2006.
Recovery is a photographic meditation on affliction and rehabilitation by Willard Traub. The work reflects the artist's own experiences battling a rare form of blood cancer, drawing on the strength of his talents as a photographer. Recovery began when Traub was diagnosed with cancer in 2005, and examines his treatment, hospitalization, and recovery process. The images, combined with personal prose and poetry, provide an intimate and hopeful commentary on a disease that signifies much larger life issues.
