Phillip Jones: Selected Photographs

Exhibition: November 5 – December 20, 2013
Artist Reception: Wednesday November 13, 5-7pm

Currently on view at the Garner Center, Phillip Jones’ investigations of transition, construction and progress in the urban landscape. Phillip’s ethereal and energetic scenes take use across America and Europe stealthily by night, leaving no stone unturned. His squares, subtle yet poignant, respond to the relationship between architecture and societal values. The often overlooked or undiscovered vantages are magically brought to life through operatic silver gelatin prints not to be missed!

Biography:

Phillip Jones was bon in 1951 in the metropolitan Washington DC area. His father was an Academy award-winning filmmaker and his mother operated an art gallery in Dupont Circle.

He studied at the Corcoran School of Art, Antioch College and Cooper Union.

In the early 70’s he worked in the television industry. His short film Secrets won numerous awards and was exhibited at the Whitney  and Hirschhon Museums. In 1979 he became a free-lance artist working both in set design for opera and medical illustration.

In 1990 Phillip and his wife  moved to Boston as he began exhibiting his photographic work. He has been exhibited at the DeCordova Museum, the Fuller Museum, the Lafayette Museum, the Hunter Museum, the Athenaeum, the Boston Public Library, the Boston Center for the Arts, the Federal Reserve Gallery, the Cesium Gallery and Chatham Gallery with fourteen solo exhibits at his primary venue; the Mercury Gallery.

His work is in numerous collections including the DeCordova Museum, the Athenaeum, the Boston Public Library, Pfizer, Fidelity Investments, Putnam Investments, Accenture, Banana Republic, Levi Strauss, Raytheon, Goldman Sachs and The Four Seasons.

He currently splits his time between Boston and Atlanta.

Promised Land is a quiet and curious investigation of the contemporary American landscape, “in all of its beauty, perversity and pathos.”  Thad Russell has spent the last 10 years photographing from Las Vegas to the Central Valley of California, the Mojave Desert to Southern Florida, examining what he describes as “locations of the American Dream.”

Up next at the Garner Center: Graduate Exhibition, Class of 2013.

The Garner Center is open Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, and on Saturdays from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.  The gallery is located at 537 Commonwealth Avenue in Boston on the second floor of the New England School of Photography.

Dina Kantor: Finnish & Jewish

Dina Kantor: Finnish & Jewish

Exhibition runs: February 25, 2013 – April 12, 2013
Opening Reception: Thursday, March 7 from 6:00pm-8:00pm

New York based photographer Dina Kantor investigates the ways photography contributes to the construction of identity and community, recording cultural signifiers and traditions of small Jewish communities in Finland, a country with only two synagogues. In a nation of 5.3 million people, the photographer asks: “How do 1,500 Jews maintain their cultural identity?” Her portraits reveal a hybridized, modern family life.

Today’s society is increasingly complex and multi-cultural. As our heritages blend, our identities are no longer definable by a generic social stereotype of community, but by our unique experiences and backgrounds.” – Dina Kantor

Dina Kantor lives and works in Brooklyn. She received her MFA from the School of Visual Arts in 2007 and her BA from the University of Minnesota in 1999. She teaches photography at SVA, ICP and Adelphi University. Her work is included in the permanent collections of The Jewish Museum in New York, the Portland Art Museum and the Southeast Museum of Photography. She is one of the recipients of the Aaron Siskind Foundation Individual Photographer’s Fellowship for 2012.
