EXPOSURE 2011 is The Photographic Resource Center (PRC) at Boston University’s 16th annual juried exhibition. The juror for EXPOSURE 2011 was Whitney Johnson, director of photography at The New Yorker.
From the exhibition statement:
"The artists featured in EXPOSURE 2011 take a strong interest in the human condition. Probing portraits, vibrant social interactions, historically-inflected landscapes, and provocative situations are all present in Johnsonâ€™s selections. The placement of each project encourages the viewer to find connections between the artistsâ€™ subjects. Although the show encompasses wildly different stylistic approaches, each project flirts with documentary photography, shedding light on the human experience in unique ways. However, the photographers seem more intent on introspection, discovery, and questioning than pointing out conditions in need of change."
The show will be open from July 21 - August 20, 2011.
The opening reception is July 21, 6:30 - 8 p.m.
The Photographic Resource Center is located at 832 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, Massachusetts, 02215. Hereâ€™s a link to Google Maps for directions.
You can also catch Dana Mueller this month at Rick Wester Fine Art in New York in the show "Hail Traveler! The Photographer as Tourist, and the Tourist as Subject."
According the statement, the show was "inspired by the writings of the late J. B. Jackson, ‘Hail Traveler! The Photographer as Tourist, and the Tourist as Subject’ at Rick Wester Fine Art features photographs focusing on the itinerant essence of photography. Works included speak to Jackson’s definition by exposing the tourist that resides in every photographer, and the tourist as a perennial target for the lens."

"The greatest thing a human soul ever does in this world is to see something, and tell what it saw in a plain way. Hundreds of people can talk for one who can think, but thousands can think for one who can see. To see clearly is poetry, prophecy, and religion, â€” all in one." â€” John Ruskin
