Fall River Portraits ‘ People, Neighborhoods, and Community

MAY 10, 2014 - MAY 31, 2014

Reception: MAY 10, 2014 at 1:00 PM


B.M.C Durfee High School and
U Mass Darmouth Photography Students

Students from B.M.C. Durfee High and UMass Dartmouth have taken their cameras into the city’s various neighborhoods and photographed the people and places they encountered. The result is a wonderfully varied and fresh look at life in various corners of the city. This collaborative portrait features many of the city’s small businesses – barber shops, bakeries, grocery stores, tattoo parlors, clothing stores ‘ as well as neighborhood scenes, moments of everyday life, and often unnoticed but fascinating detail. The project is sponsored by a UMass Creative Economies grant. An Artists’ Reception will take place on Saturday, May 10 from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. Admission is free. The public is cordially invited.
