From a submission pool of 270 photographers, Juror Alison Nordström selected ten artists for inclusion in EXPOSURE 2012.
The PRC's esteemed annual juried exhibition, EXPOSURE, honors emerging photographers from across North America by providing a venue to celebrate their work in a group show. Since its inception in 1996, over 300 photographers have displayed their images on the PRC's gallery walls. Each year, a respected member of the New England art
community--from curators to gallerists to photo editors--is asked to select ten to fifteen standout artists from a pool of several hundred. Each artist then shows five to ten photographs, adding up to a truly interesting exhibit each year.

UPCOMING SATELLITE EXHIBITION
Chris Enos: The Remaking of Boston
June 12 - August 31, 2012
Opening Reception: Tuesday, June 12, 6pm
Boston Society of Architecture
290 Congress Street, Boston, MA
Chris Enos, Untitled, 1976, Silver Gelatin Print, 16 x 20 inches.
The PRC presents Chris Enos: The Remaking of Boston, a series of 19 photographs by the artist and PRC founder Chris Enos. From 1975 to 1980, Enos documented her neighborhood, the Leather District and Fort Point Channel, at a time of tremendous urban revitalization in Boston. During this time, the historically industrial neighborhood transformed from gritty artist studios to the polished financial and cultural centers they are today. Chris Enos: The Remaking of Boston not only captures a portrait of Boston that would soon disappear, but also the process of urban revival. As such, this series is an important document of the architectural history of Boston at the moment of its remaking.
