Joni Lohr's "Talking Turkey" is one of the photos on display at the Jamaica Plain Branch Library. 

For half a century Lohr has captured, "...the energy of live musical performances, the camaraderie between friends, the ghosts of abandoned buildings, and the spontaneity of urban life."

Lohr's exhibit includes photos of some familiar Boston area locations, as well as ones you may not recognize.

"The subjects in her photographs laugh, play, wait, walk, talk, teach, and observe, some engaging with one another and others seemingly isolated from the world around them. Together the exhibition acts as a portrait of city life as viewed through Lohr’s eyes, one of interaction and introspection, of starts and stops, and incredible variety," according to a press release.

Joni Lohr's exhibit is on display at the Jamaica Plain Branch Library through Aug. 31, 2018.

"Joni Lohr: Unfinished Stories - A Social Documentary" is on view on the lower level through August 31, 2018.

This is one of six rotating art exhibits at the library as part of a relationship between the Friends of the Jamaica Plain Branch of the Boston Public Library in partnership with Uforge.  This program is supported in part by a grant from the Boston Cultural Council, administered by the Mayor’s Office of Arts and Culture.
