The show featured the Artistic work of:
A lifelong Massachusetts resident, Ryan currently resides in Boston, MA. He has been shooting various subjects from local bands, to corporate events for the past 7 years, however finds his true passion in photography to lie in capturing the world we live in. He aims to capture the vibrancy of the world around us and attempts to show us places we have all seen and know in a new light. Focusing on both the urban setting of Boston as well as the scenic vistas of New England’s country and coast , Ryan spends his time traveling the Northeast in search of engaging and interesting shots. More of his work can be seen on his New England photography blog www.rpdphoto.blogspot.com.
A young man who grew up in the Midwest and replanted in Boston. Tobias is an architect/artist who shows work in coffee shops, bars and internets. He has taken a technical sense of composition and color, then added a natural predilection for whimsy. The majority of his work is built up on found wood or paper; a decision the artist makes to embody the organic and abstract process of death and rebirth.
A Boston-based artist, Dereck is deeply inspired by the built environment, especially the many construction and renovation projects that Boston has undergone over the past few years. Subjects that capture his imagination include buildings under construction, floor plans, squares, and other found forms of the urban landscape.
Mangus’ work cleverly synthesizes his experiences with and knowledge of visual art and environmental studies, both of which he studied as an undergrad at UMass Boston. He is currently employed at the Gardner Museum while he completes his Masters Thesis on “The Square and the Grid in Western Visual Culture” (a working title) at Harvard University.
