Peter Bosco
Dec. 14, 2007-Feb. 24, 2008

The Museum is featuring an exhibition of six black and white photographs by photographer Peter Bosco on view Dec. 14, 2007 - Feb. 24, 2008. This suite of images is taken from Bosco's larger body of work, entitled Fading Places.

Fading Places reflects the disappearing structures Bosco has encountered throughout his lifetime. Bosco believes nothing is permanent and creating a photograph, on some level, is acknowledgment that "loss is inevitable." He says many of his images represent a "desire to preserve cultural and socially referential vestiges unique during my lifetime." The black and white photographs best reflect the angst he sometimes feels for the isolated places he is drawn to photograph.

Bosco received his Masters in Fine Arts from Ohio University and has been a photographer for the past 25 years. He has taught at several colleges and universities. His images have been on view all over New England including exhibitions at Yale University and the Mount Washington Summit Museum in New Hampshire.
