New Library Photo Exhibition Highlights Jamaica Plain Neighborhoods

Photos in the most recent art exhibit at the Jamaica Plain Branch Library may look familiar, as Robin Radin's "The Nearness of Us" features JP neighborhoods. JP resident Radin presents our neighborhood's parks, streets, train stations, and other public spaces while using stark black and white images. “My work examines the intricacies of human relations: a visual acknowledgement that we are both together as community and family, and alone, as individuals,” said Radin. In her exhibit, Radin observes the relationships of relatives, friends, partners, and their surrounding environment. She utilized quiet moments occurring within the more frenetic experience of city life.

Both Radin and Goldman employ their work as a means of documenting, celebrating, and asking questions about the geographic communities in which they are embedded," said Caitlin Foley, exhibition curator.
