This month’s Zoom meeting welcomes Josh Farr, Executive Director and Curator of the Vermont Center for Photography (VCP) in Brattleboro, Vermont. He will take us on a virtual tour of VCP this Sunday, March 5, 2023 at 7:30PM EST. The non-profit VCP has been operating since 1998, and moved into a new location in downtown Brattleboro in 2021. Farr took on this leadership role 12 years ago after earning a BFA in Photography from New Hampshire Institute of Art in 2011.
The presentation will give an overview of all that is offered at VCP, and the resources it makes available for photographers and photography lovers across the northeast. This includes monthly photographic exhibitions in the gallery spaces, group photography classes, and public artist talks, as well as publicly accessible studio spaces (digital lab and traditional darkroom), library, and a thrift store of photographic equipment.
The program will include some of Farr’s own photographic work, insight into the evolution of his interest in photography over the last two decades, and how he ultimately came to work at VCP. He is responsible for curating the center’s monthly photographic exhibitions and assisting with organizing photographic workshops, artists talks, publications & catalogues, and representing VCP at photographic conferences and portfolio reviews.
As if that wasn’t enough, Farr has worked for the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center since 2012, where he is a staff photographer and exhibitions installer/art-handler. He welcomes this opportunity to share his deep passion for the photographic medium!
