Ferry recently published Violentology: A Manual of the Colombian Conflict, and Rodriguez recently launched the website Each venue tells a compelling story of social importance using non-standard publishing techniques. Violentology, published by Umbrage Editions in 2012, explores the Colombian conflict from its roots in the 19th century to the present. The book, designed by Ferry, was printed on the same rotary presses as the legendary Bogotá daily, El Espectador, using a heat set process to bake the ink on the surface of the page., a website using both still images and multimedia, chronicles the life of Jesse De La Cruz, a former drug addict, career criminal and prison gang member, who, after more than 30 years of recidivism, turned his life around.

The Space in Between
January 28 - March 22, 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.

The Doors of Perception: Vision and Innovation in Alternative Processes
Featuring work by Ron Cowie, Jesseca Ferguson, Gretjen Helene, Scott McMahon, Mark Osterman and France Scully Osterman, and Jerry Spagnoli
February 5 - March 23, 2013 
PRC Gallery, 832 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, MA

Scott McMahon
Don't miss your chance to see the show everyone has been raving about!
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.
