This exhibition features photographs made over the last 20 years by renowned Boston artist Barbara Bosworth around her childhood home in Novelty, Ohio, and other locations significant to her family. Featuring the oldest and youngest members of the family, these touching images explore the joy of youth and the wistfulness of aging, the nature of memory and the passage of time. Also included are a selection of natural history specimens handed down in the artist's family. This is Bosworth's major museum debut in New England.
The photographs in Natural Histories, Photographs by Barbara Bosworth are among the most successful of Bosworth's career, but most will appear for the first time at PEM.
