Read the 15 Poems written by the Never Too Late to be a Poet — a Boston-based poetry group

The exhibition showcases 51 photographs from 31 ‘present’ BCC members that reference twelve ‘past’ photographs from the club’s archives or representing past and current honorary members, creating a visual dialog among photographers from different eras. The exhibition reveals both changes and continuity in how photographers depict our world and lives from the 1880s to 2022. Never Too Late To Be A Poet, a Boston-based poetry group, has written 15 poems referencing the exhibition’s past and present photographs. These poems will be accessible while viewing the exhibition.
