Dominic Chavez
Dominic Chavez, Untitled, 2009-2011.


The PRC's Global Health in Focus project focuses on three of the greatest health challenges the world community faces today: HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and access to clean water. This project aims to educate our New England community about these critical global health issues, utilizing documentary photography to offer direct insight into the individuals and communities affected. The panel discussion, along with the exhibition, will lead to a greater understanding of the challenges and possible solutions to global health problems, particularly the work of Boston-based institutions. 




Michael Benari: New York - Untitledneo_benardi


Each of his photographs are visual haikus, juxtaposing incongruous visual elements to find meaning from where there may be none. The meaning to be found is Benari's own sense of place, his relationship to his surroundings, and his non-literal reading of the landscape.

Global Health in Focus  

Photographs by Kristen Ashburn, Dominic Chavez, and David Rochkind

Reception: Wednesday, March 7, 7:30 - 9 pm
PRC Gallery, 832 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston
Kristen Ashburn, Untitled, 2001-2007.


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.
