NYC: Pinhole Photos
Rose Marasco, Times Square, no. 1, 2009.
While the Manhattan streets are filled with the bustle of rushing pedestrians and cars, Rose Marasco's photographs allow this urban activity to be metaphorically pushed away in an effort to provide an exquisitely singular view of the environment itself.

An Evening at Howard Yezerski Gallery with Karl Baden
January 17, 2013
$35 General Public | $25 PRC Members
Karl Baden, Cambridge, MA.
Join us at Howard Yezerski Gallery on January 17 to discuss Karl Baden's new exhibit, Roadside Attraction with the artist, gallery owner, and gallery director.
Through the shield of laminated safety glass, Baden exposes the view from his eye in Roadside Attraction. Framed by his car's perceptions, this world is wacky, quizzical, and incomprehensible. Spaces are inside out, and it takes time for your perception to settle. Where is he? What is that? Is he DRIVING? These are slow photographs; their content leaks out of those odd angles at its own pace.
The PRC's newly established Collectors Focus provides programming for photography collectors in the greater Boston area. While there are numerous opportunities in and around Boston to view exhibitions and to hear artist talks, rarely is programming designed specifically for the photography collecting audience. The Collectors Focus creates a community of collectors, encouraging dialogue and networking opportunities with other participants specifically about issues of importance to this audience, in addition to making connections with local galleries, museums, and major photography players.

The Doors of Perception: Vision and Innovation in Alternative Processes showcases contemporary photographers working with a diverse range of historic, or alternative, photographic processes, such as pinhole photography, tintype, cyanotype, platinum printing, and gum bichromate, as well as liquid emulsion. Employing these photographic processes from the past to create unique handmade photographic objects, the artists in this exhibition reinvest the photograph with what critic Walter Benjamin feared would vanish in the age of reproduction: the "aura" of a work of art.

EXHIBITIONSThe Space in Between
This exhibition will relocate in late January from the PRC Gallery to the Boston Properties Atlantic Wharf Gallery
November 15, 2012 - January 19, 2013
PRC Gallery, 832 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston
January 28 - March 22, 2013
Opening reception and artists/curator talk: Thursday, January 31, 2013,
Satellite Exhibition at Boston Properties Atlantic Wharf Gallery
290 Congress Street, Boston, MA
The Space in Between features artwork that focuses on societal built environments in urban settings. The images capture supposedly empty or vacant scenes in public spaces where humans are present without being pictured. The very absence of human subjects forces the viewer to contemplate the space in between these human-made structures. While firmly rooted in the 21st century, these photographs also portray a timeless feel, as if the artists froze the frame at the initial moment of abandonment, preserving a particular constructed expression of culture for generations to come.
