I Surrender, Dear, Umbrella Arts Gallery, Juror Frances Jakubek

Communication becomes stifled when the topic is sorrow. Gestures shift while contemplating mortality. Rituals are performed while the sky continues on despite us. Fifteen visual artists will show together and address aspects of navigating loss, foregoing the notion that grief is something better hidden away.

Queen? Que? Donde?Griffin Museum of Photography, Lafayette Center Boston June-Sept 2018

  Quién? Qué? Dónde?” means  “Who? What? Where?” in Spanish.  Spanish is one of the worlds’ most commonly spoken languages and is often chosen as the second language one learns. The name was chosen for this portrait exhibition in order to underscore the complexities of all of our diverse roots. A portrait photograph can inspire many questions and if we look hard and long enough, the answers as well.

The Dark Room Gallery   The Face  Juror, Catherine Just
to Aug 31

The Dark Room Gallery The Face Juror, Catherine Just

A philosopher once wrote “The face is the soul of the body”. While one might not agree with the implications of that statement, a person’s facial expressions are a reflection of their personality whether or not they are aware of it.  As photographers, we are more or less successful at capturing the essence of a person in a single photo. 


Exhibit Calendar (Subject to Change)

Exhibit Opens:20 July 17

Artists' Reception:5 August 17 16:00

Exhibit Closes:13 August 17

The Face
Exhibit Catalog now available at PrestoPhoto

The Darkroom Gallery Difference


It’s redundant to say that faces are pictured everywhere now that digital media and the internet put literally billions of images in front of us every day.  And yet the oversaturation created by social media and selfies has made it, if anything, more difficult to create an image that goes to the essence of the subject. The existence of facial recognition software and the consequent loss of personal boundaries may contribute to a guardedness that makes emotional expression feel even more threatening.  Thus the challenge to the photographer is to establish a rapport that creates openness. This can even apply in self portraiture.

The purpose of this exhibition is to reveal the emotion, intelligence, passion, character, and immense variety expressed in the human face.  Whether your métier is the self portrait or photographing others, we’d like to see your work.
