(Brookline, MA -- August 6, 2007) The Brookline Arts Center is pleased to announce an exhibit of photographs by members of the Boston Camera Club. “BCC at the BAC” will run from September 4, 2007 through October 5, 2007. The juried show will feature the photography of seventeen member photographers.

In 1881 -- barely 50 years after the invention of photography -- a group of amateur photographers formed the Boston Society of Amateur Photography. Soon re-named the Boston Camera Club, these enthusiasts met to discuss their work and use the club’s state-of-the-art darkrooms.

Now, the Boston Camera Club meets each week in Brookline, Massachusetts. Discussion topics vary from printing and competitions, to portrait techniques and composition. The Brookline Arts Center exhibition was chosen by a jury and includes the accomplished works by 17 BCC members.

There will be an opening reception for the Boston Camera Club show on Thursday September 6, 2007 from 6 to 8:30 p.m.

A photo salon will also be offered by BCC photographers Mark Staples, Argie Staples, Kate Jones, Simon Pang and Peizhong Bao on Thursday October 4, 2007 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Both are free and open to the public. Photographers at all levels of ability are encouraged to bring examples of their work to share with the Photography Salon. Both special events are free and open to the public.

The show will coincide with the Brookline Art Center’s room-sized camera exhibit “Walk Inside the Camera,” from August 21, 2007 through September 14, 2007. The two shows will work together to illustrate changing photographic technologies, from the beginnings of photography with the camera obscura through today’s digital process.

The exhibition is open from Monday through Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For more information please visit the BAC website at or call 617.566.5715. Located at 86 Monmouth Street in Brookline, MA, the Brookline Arts Center is easily accessible from the St. Mary’s stop on the C line, the Fenway stop on the D line, and the CT2 and 47 bus stops.
