Past Featured Volunteer
“I’ve been making long-exposure landscapes, using the 11×14 view camera that I built. The camera is kind of ridiculously cumbersome, but I’m enjoying wrestling with it, as a sort of antidote to the rapid flood of iPhone/Instagram imagery that I find can be a bit overwhelming.”
“My imagination has always been running wild. I used to be a real bookworm, reading all the time, and I think that influenced my imagination a lot. I always liked creating my own world with my own characters, and making photographs for that because it’s the most believable medium.”
“Volunteering at the PRC, you meet such interesting people,” says Carol Parker. “I like contributing to the sense of community, and having photographers come together.” She has been a stalwart PRC volunteer for years, contributing significant time and expertise.
As a 20-something MIT student, Dick studied under Minor White. “I think I was too young to really appreciate what Minor had to offer. But I’ve thought about it since, and what I mostly learned from him was craftsmanship. A lot of my attention to that came from studying with him…”
When the PRC moved out of its long-time home on Commonwealth Ave, Diane Sheridan was there to help, just as she has been over the years. “It was fun,” she says. “I liked going through all those old archives. A lot of it had to go, but we saved some good stuff that documents the history of the PRC.”
