In celebration of the Boston Camera Club’s 140th anniversary, the Past and Present Exhibition will showcase club members’ photos, 12 archival images representing the history of the BCC, and poems contributed by the Never Too Late To Be a Poet poetry group.

Members must submit family-friendly photographs that respond to one or more of the over 100 BCC archival images available for viewing (see FAQ for complete information and links to the archival galleries). Submitted photographs can be created specifically for this exhibit or chosen from your own archive. The idea is to find a connection or response to an older photo or photos from ANY of the online galleries below with your own work. All of the archival images happen to be monochrome, please feel free to use color or monochrome for your images. The connection or response could be related to style, composition, subject matter, emotion, quality of light, or whatever you find that interests you. As part of an artist statement you will be asked to identify the archival image that inspired or made a connection to your own.  

The Never Too Late To Be A Poet poetry group will participate in this exhibition. They will create poetry in response to the images in the exhibition and the BCC archives. A binder of their contributed poetry will be available at the exhibition for viewing by the general public.
