About meThe Photographic Resource Center at Boston University is New England's Center for Photography
Founded in 1976, the Photographic Resource Center (PRC) is an independent non-profit organization located on the campus of Boston University. Cited by the Boston Globe as "one-stop shopping for the photo buff," the PRC provides its members and the general public with thought-provoking exhibitions; distinctive education programs; wide-ranging resources; and unique special events.
Emphasizing new ideas and trends in contemporary photography, the PRC’s gallery hosts 5 exhibitions each year. Ranging from provocative theme-based exhibitions emphasizing regional photographers, to the highly anticipated Juried and Student exhibitions, the PRC’s exhibition programs will keep you coming back for more. Online presentations are led by Northeast Exposure Online, a monthly series featuring emerging artists from the region.
Led by regional and national photography luminaries, regular PRC education programs include lectures, workshops, and portfolio reviews, as well as tours for school and community groups. Featured program leaders have included Bruce Davidson, Annie Leibowitz, James Nachtwey, and William Wegman.
The PRC’s constantly expanding resources are designed to keep its community members apprised of photography information and happenings. Resource highlights include this comprehensive website, a quaterly newsletter, in the loupe, and a 4,000 volume library.
The PRC’s calendar is highlighted by acclaimed photography events. The Fall’s PRC Benefit Auction provides participants with the opportunity to bid on close to 200 photographs by both renowned and emerging artists. Other special member and cultivation events are also held throughout the year.
