“People rarely call the Photographic Resource Center at Boston University by its full name. Instead, it's just 'the PRC.' That's as it should be. The informality of the initials emphasizes how uninstitutional an institution the PRC is: flexible, innovative, unpredictable.”

-- Mark Feeney, Boston Globe, “Big picture, small space, Dizzyingly varied exhibit looks to the future,” November 17, 2006. Mark Feeney won a Pulitzer Prize for Criticism in 2008.
