The Griffin Museum of Photography and the Photographic Resource Center are proud to present the New England Portfolio Reviews Showcase (also known as NEPR Showcase). For the past 5 years, the Griffin and PRC have jointly organized the annual New England Portfolio Reviews. An opportunity for emerging, mid-career, and established photographers to meet with curators, educators, gallerists, and other image professionals, NEPR is another way the Griffin Museum and PRC enthusiastically support the photographic community of New England. Through NEPR, artists gain valuable feedback from photography experts and reach new audiences by establishing relationships with these leading figures in the arts community.

This year, NEPR had a record number of participating artists (107). Capping off this successful event was the portfolio walk. 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, June 8. The Griffin Museum and PRC selected six photographers to feature in the NEPR Showcase from over fifty participants in the portfolio walk.

NEPR Showcase includes everything from diaristic images made with cell phone and digital cameras to formal studies of fireworks to mysterious and luminescent X-ray images. The six artists featured in the exhibition show the diverse and inventive approaches to photography in New England today. The Griffin Museum and PRC would like to thank all of the artists who participated in NEPR this past June, as well as the six artists featured in this exhibition.
