    A photograph at times can be just as much about the photographer as it is about the subject matter. When the moment goes well it is also about the relationship, however brief. This can refer to the relationship between people, or between the photographer and the world around them. When making work or viewing photographs, it is our life experiences that help us understand and connect to the human experience. For some it is the connection that drives the making.

    This exhibition features photojournalism and documentary work from members of the Boston Photo League, an informal collective of Boston-area women and non-binary photojournalists and documentary photographers. The images exemplify the unique connection between photographer and subject matter, whether it is a project or single frame, each photographer has an individual approach. As women and non-binary photographers, we inherently seek to bond with our subjects and relate to stories in a distinctive way. As a result, the work becomes a shared experience.
