Picturing the Invisible: An Exploration of Photography
Picturing the Invisible, an exhibit that explores photography as a tool of scientific, personal and social visualization will be presented at the Thompson Gallery at The Cambridge School of Weston. The three-part exhibition will run from Sept.6, 2013 through Jun. 15, 2014, and will highlight work from three artists:
Fall: Harold Edgerton—Flash Revelations
“Flash Revelations,” the first of three exhibitions in the series, highlights the celebrated life work of Harold Edgerton. Inventor, engineer, MIT professor, and explorer, Edgerton pioneered the use of high-speed, strobe-photography to arrest movement and capture on film things that were once impossible to see.
Winter: Les Mastenbrook ‘00—Multiple Angles at Once
Les Mastenbrook ’00 died at age 24 in a car accident in 2006. Her passion for photography was ignited during high school while at CSW. Her photographs depict the everyday life and banal subjects as the backs of houses. “Multiple Angles at Once”is a loving tribute to Les and runs from December 19, 2013 to February 21, 2014.
Spring: Milton Rogovin—Social Optometry
“Social Optometry,” the third and final exhibition in the series, examines the work of social documentary photographer Milton Rogovin, who unflinchingly used his photographs as a vehicle for creating social awareness of working class citizens. The exhibit will run from April 4 through June 16, 2014.
