Feast for the eyes

After a brief tour of St. Lucy's feast, I was joined by Professor M at Nebo, a a nice little enoteca and restaurant at the cusp of the North End.  We enjoyed a crisp Gavi bianco, eggplant timballo and a pizza bianco con rucola. Next to the bar was a painting that looked oddly familiar and…

We met our PRC fundraising goal!

If you've been following my microdrivel lately, you know that I've been actively fundraising for the Photographic Resource Center at BU. On Monday, we (by which I mean all my donors and I) hit the $2,000 goal. This is a big step, achieved ahead of schedule, and I wanted to take a moment here to…

Pulling out all the (f) stops for the Photographic Resource Center

Fink photogaphs like a frog

Earlier this week I was lucky enough to see and hear photographer Larry Fink show and discuss his work in a lecture sponsored by the Photographic Resource Center.  The event was beset by awful weather and several technical difficulties but Fink's genius and geniality shone through it all. The man is a legend and deservedly…

Double exposure with PRC: Fusco and Wolinsky at BU and MIT

Paul Fusco spoke softly but passionately to a packed…

First up, next Thursday, October 16, is the Photographic Resource…

The Minkkinen Helsinki Bus Station Theory

Tonight I had the privilege of hearing (and seeing) Photographer Arno Minkkinen speak at the Photographic Resource Center's Polaroid Spotlight Lecture. If you haven't experienced Minkkinen's photographs, please immediately go outside and prance around naked in the snow. Or buy one of his books right away. Your choice. Plenty of others have analyzed and praised…

Blackboards and Whiteboards

More synchronicities and reveries. Last week, I joined some good folks from two of my favorite TLAs, PRC and MIT for a reception at the new gallery space at MIT's Center for Theoretical Physics, which was created in collaboration with the Photographic Resource Center. I found my way to building 6 and eventually to the…

"In order not to go blind, you have to travel"

Last night I attended an excellent photo lecture by Andrea Robbins and Max Becher sponsored by the Photographic Resource Center in affiliation with the New Center for Arts and Culture at the BU Photonics Center. (Photonics Center?? What goes on at such a place?) And after, I was able to join some PRC people for…

Last week was the annual benefit at the Center for Photography at Woodstock and just two weeks away is the parallel event at the Photographic Resource Center in Boston. The Woodstock event was different this year, with…
