    Since 2009 NEPR has been co-produced by the Griffin Museum of Photography and the PRC with the mission of bringing reviewers and photographers together from New England and beyond for two days of discussion, networking, and gaining fresh perspective on one’s work. NEPR serves photographers who are just embarking on their careers, and more established photographers, all hoping to reach new audiences and gain fresh perspective on their work. The online format allows for an expansion of participants in volume and in location including reviewers such as gallerists, book publishers, museum professionals, critics, educators and advisors from all over the world who provide guidance and potential opportunities to grow artist practices.

    The April 5th Keynote Speaker is Accra Shepp, photographer and writer, based in New York where he teaches at the School of Visual Arts. Shepp’s images have been exhibited worldwide in galleries and museums such as the African American Museum, Philadelphia, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Whitney Museum and the Brooklyn Museum just to name a few. His work is the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and other institutions, and his writing has appeared in The New York Times and the New York Review of Books.

    Discount available for PRC Members.
