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.
