David Torcoletti, Untitled, from the series Soldiers, Archival Inkjet Print on Rag
The PRC staff selected six photographers from the pool of artists showing work at the NEPR Portfolio Walk. This exhibition, team curated by the PRC Staff, is just another way that we continue promote the talented photographers of New England!
>> Beth Hankes Unrelenting Silence (Cambridge, MA)
>> Phillip Jones Shooting in the Dark (Boston, MA)
>> Anita Līcis-Ribak Time Still and Letters Between the (Coast) Lines
>> Shaun O'Boyle Rail Lines (Dalton, MA)
>> David Ricci Edge of Chaos (Lee, MA)
>> David Torcoletti Soldiers (Norwell, MA)
NEPR Showcase includes an interesting variety of work, ranging from a site-specific photo installation dealing with the arc of passionate experience to investigations of changing industrial landscapes to fragmented prints on airmail paper assembled into collages. The artists--emerging and established--clearly demonstrate the vast diversity in today’s photographic practice in Massachusetts. The PRC staff was particularly drawn to these unique projects due to their excellent craftsmanship and artistic voice.

About New England Portfolio Reviews
The Photographic Resource Center and the Griffin Museum of Photography partner together each year to offer the New England Portfolio Reviews (NEPR) in the spring. NEPR is an opportunity for emerging and established photographers to meet with curators, educators, gallerists, and other image professionals to receive feedback on work presented. It assists individuals who are just embarking on their careers and those who have several years of experience and are hoping to reach new audiences by initiating connections with leading figures in the vibrant New England photography world. In order to be considered for this year’s NEPR Showcase, photographers had to participate in at least one review at NEPR and present their work at the Portfolio Walk on Saturday, May 12, 2012.
