John Chervinsky, a self-taught photographer and engineer, ran a particle accelerator at Harvard University for 18 years and currently works at Harvard's Rowland Institute, founded by Polaroid's Edwin Land. Shown nationally and internationally, his work is held in public, private, and corporate collections and he was twice recognized as one of the Top 50 Photographers in Photolucida's Critical Mass. Inspired by predecessors such as John Pfahl, Chervinsky explores issues of perception, photography, and belief in his conceptual still-lifes.
Chervinsky was featured in the 2003 PRC Juried Exhibition, juried by PRC founder Chris Enos, and the inaugural show at a PRC-organized series at MIT's Center for Theoretical Physics in 2007-08. This print is from his well-known series "An Experiment in Perspective," which has traveled extensively and is the subject of a hand-made, limited edition book, supported by Light Work.
All prints are available for viewing at the PRC with advanced notice.
