Flowers, boats, babies, cemeteries, lobster traps (I was living and teaching in Maine then)...the list would grow, sometimes change, but always (…)

Jennifer Thoreson (Hudson)
Jennifer B Thoreson (Hudson) is a fresh, young visual fine art photographer creating staged imagery that is both artistically stylized and meticulously crafted.

He works with these papers as found, discarded objects, utilizing the typically unwanted color shifts and random (…)

The PRC invites entries for EXPOSURE: The 21th Annual PRC Juried Exhibition and seeks a broad range work, including both traditional and non-traditional approaches to photography. Since its inception in 1996, over 300 photographers have shown in the PRC Juried Exhibitions—including an array of established photographers and those cited as “ones to watch.”Each year, a respected member of the photographic community—from curators to gallerists to photo editors—is asked to select 10 to 15 artists. The curator then selects between two and five pieces per person, thus offering artists the opportunity to showcase a series at a deeper level and making for an enriching experience for audiences as well.
