Willard Traub: Recovery
February 9 – March 24, 2012
Reception: Wednesday, March 7, 7:30 – 9 pm
PRC Gallery, 832 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston

Willard Traub, Recovery 1, 2006.

Recovery is a photographic meditation on affliction and rehabilitation by Willard Traub. The work reflects the artist’s own experiences battling a rare form of blood cancer, drawing on the strength of his talents as a photographer. Recovery began when Traub was diagnosed with cancer in 2005, and examines his treatment, hospitalization, and recovery process. The images, combined with personal prose and poetry, provide an intimate and hopeful commentary on a disease that signifies much larger life issues.

Willard Traub is a Massachusetts based photographer whose interests range from the commercial photography of architecture to teaching to fine art photography. Recipient of numerous grants and awards, including a Photography Fellowship from the Massachusetts Cultural Council and a Polaroid Foundation Grant, his work is represented in private, museum and corporate collections, both nationally and abroad.

The PRC gratefully acknowledges the Danforth Museum and School of Art for organizing Recovery. The show was originally exhibited at the Danforth Museum in the fall of 2011.
