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.

PRC Board of Directors Approves New Mission Statement 

On January 21, 2012, the PRC Board of Directors approved by unanimous vote a new mission statement for the organization. The new statement affirms our commitment to our members and the photographic community with updated language that is shorter and more focused on our core work. The new statement is:

The Photographic Resource Center (PRC) is a vital forum for the exploration, interpretation, and celebration of new work, ideas, and methods in photography. We inspire our members and the broader community with thought-provoking exhibits, educational programs, and resources that support the advancement of the photographic arts.

Please visit our blog if you would like to post comments about this new statement.

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.



Vicki Goldberg: American Women Photographers

Wednesday, February 22, 2012, 6:30 pm
BU Sargent College, Room 101
635 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston
$10 General Public | $5 Members and Students (must present valid membership card or student id)
No charge for students of PRC member institutions
Online registration available soon.

Nan Goldin, Nan one month after being battered, 1984.

Vicki Goldberg, one of the leading voices in the field of photography criticism, will discuss how and why American women photographers, most prominently Cindy Sherman and Nan Goldin, came to the attention of the photography world in the late 1970s and early 1980s after lurking on the fringes for a long time. She will also examine the way the principle concerns of that first crop of important women artists, including the entire appropriation movement, have persisted to the present day and continue to influence photographers.

"One of photography's most revered and beloved critics, Goldberg examines both the history of photography and our current state of affairs with curiosity, wit, and cutting insight." - Photo Eye

3200K QuarterlyOnline Blog and Printed Fine Art Magazine Launches 

A new online blog and printed fine art quarterly
 launched in Boston, MA, with the intentions of being a new forum for the publication of works made with analog photographic media.

With film and darkroom papers disappearing from the shelves of both

local and national photo shops, photography is quickly and surely
headed towards digitization. This move towards the digital, while
perhaps opening the medium to more people, distances it from its
roots as a silver-based process. Where do photographers devoted to
analog processes fit into this new equation?

3200K Quarterly is devoted to promoting photographers working with

traditional analog methods. It is published weekly online in blog form,
and quarterly in print form. Each printed issue will be accompanied by
a launch party, which will serve as a networking forum for the
photographers, as well as a celebration and exhibition of the works
featured in that issue. Through these three forums - online, printed
and as a social gathering - 3200K seeks to support and promote
photographers dedicated to traditional analog approaches to lightbased
