North America, with its insatiable appetite for all things new, leaves much of what was once valued to fall down or rust away.
“Wrecks & Ruins “ presents images of these left-behinds of the consumer society to be viewed as "beautiful neglect”.
UPCOMING EVENTS & INFO
For each of us early life experiences and traumas produce long term conditioning, constructed ways of dealing with reality and going through life. Counting the Walls intends to shed light on these psychological spaces where we often wander unconsciously and which make us a prison to ourselves.
Through a first-person perspective viewers are invited to reflect upon the relationship between physical and psychological spaces as a first step in identifying personal prisons.
Acquainted with the Night explores the capacity for storytelling of street photography at night. The night aesthetic, with its unique beauty and moodiness, can elevate the most mundane activity or setting into something with greater mystery and potential. As a photographer Jane’s images portray stories of the night in two settings – Canada and Mexico. The images reflect her practice of regular walks through her community and her travels throughout Mexico.

While masking is no longer required, all participants are encouraged to wear masks during the print review, for the safety of all participating.

New Year Offering
Angela Rowlings (USA)
In my personal work documenting the city of Boston, I seek to create images that show the truth and life of my community. The city’s Lunar New Year celebration returned to Chinatown for the Year of the Tiger in 2022 after official festivities were canceled in 2021 due to the pandemic. Though I’ve photographed this celebration every year, the increase in anti-Asian hate and violence made it feel especially important to capture the joy and cultural pride demonstrated by lion dances and offerings of oranges, lettuce and red envelopes.
