HIGH SCHOOL PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBIT

May 24 - June 4, 1999

Closing Reception: Friday, June 4 6 -9 pm

The Gallery @ Green Street is proud to announce its exhibition of photographs from Jamaica Plain's most talented young student photographers, featuring works from the Greater Egleston Community High School and the Boston Photo Collaborative. The exhibition is curated by Boston photographer Morgan Cohen.

 

The Greater Egleston Community High School's photography program has developed a strong group of photographers. The Gallery will be presenting photo essays from their advanced students and selected images from their beginners. Egleston students have created a vibrant and engaging body of work, documenting and photographing their lives and the world around them. A sharp eye and a fresh look at photography mark all their subjects ranging from portraits of friends and family histories to the documentation of life as a young adult.

 

The Boston Photo Collaborative has, for the past seven years, successfully endeavored to produce serious and committed young photographers during their summer photography program, Project Image. A selection of student works from this program will be on view, in which their intense learning experience is conveyed clearly and powerfully.  The exhibition also includes selections from

Project Images' Brookside Neighborhood Project, in which students documented the everyday lives of Jamaica Plain's Brookside Street residents. These intimate color photographs provide an insightful and informative view into this neighborhood, telling the story of its history though a look at its diverse inhabitants.
