Welcome to the Photographic Historical Society of New England (PHSNE)
Coming in April:
"HOLDING MY GROUND"
Sunday April 6 2014 1:00 at Morse Auditorium, Boston University, 602 Commonwealth Ave., Boston MA
See poster and flyer for images and information; and the meetings page for driving directions and a map.
PHSNE is proud to be able to host, in collaboration with the Photographic Resource Center at Boston University and the New England School of Photography, an afternoon of images and conversation with world-renowned photographer and teacher Arno Rafael Minkkinen at the Morse Auditorium at Boston University.
Minkkinen has been looking very closely at himself for over 43 years, and sharing what he sees with us. His thoughtful, occasionally startling and often humorous photographs of the body as elemental in the landscape have the power to make us look more carefully at the world; maybe make us laugh a little at what we see, or fail to see at first glance. They grace museum and gallery walls from New York to Moscow and Beijing, have been published in numerous magazines and at least three books, and serve as a basis for his continued work as a teacher of art and photography all over the world, most recently in Lowell, at the University of Massachusetts.
Minkkinen's presentation, which he titles "Holding My Ground," will begin at 1 p.m. on Sunday, April 6. The Morse Auditorium at B.U. is located at 602 Commonwealth Avenue in Boston. Public transportation is strongly advised.
