John has been a photographer since the age of 7. Retired from a career writing construction specifications for architecture firms, he is able to spend much more time on his own photography.

Jen is an interdisciplinary artist interested in the construction of the American identity both in how it is represented and how it is lived in. She examines contemporary America through the lens of popular culture, history, religion and tourism using rites, rituals, and experiences where meaning is emphasized and considered by way of sound, celebration, prayer and record. Jen has an MFA from The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and Tufts University.
Jen teaches photography at Lesley University College of Art and Design and video at the University of Massachusetts, Boston. She divides her time between Boston and her home state of Maine.

Brian’s photography concerns how we live and the evidence of what we are doing. He explores this primarily through landscape, focusing on the ever-changing lines between rural, suburban and urban spaces. Recently, he began making pictures in Detroit, watching a city transform itself from rubble and ruin to vibrancy and life. He’s also begun turning his camera towards his own life and how he and his family fill the space in which they live.
Brian studied at Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and at Lesley Art + Design. His work has been shown locally and nationally, and is in many private collections. Currently, he manages the photography labs and teaches at Lesley Art + Design, where the PRC is a resident partner.
