Photo Exhibit: Focus on Brook Farm

New Brook Farm, Inc. presents “Focus on Brook Farm,” an exhibit of photos taken at the site by local amateur and professional photographers. Brookline Bank on Centre St., West Roxbury (next to Starbucks and the Paper Store) is generously hosting the exhibit through February 26, 2016.

The eleven images represent all aspects of Brook Farm’s natural and built environment. Most were taken on September 20, 2015 during a guided photographic outing hosted by New Brook Farm with Andrew Barr, a photographer specializing in historic preservation projects.

Mr. Barr and professional photographers Christoph Gervais of Roslindale and Rob Macintosh of West Roxbury chose the images on display from among the 40 submitted.

Stop by Brookline Bank during regular banking hours to see these beautiful and surprising photos taken by your friends and neighbors: David Forsyth, Wilfred Holton, Preston Keller, Joseph Madsen, Miriam Madsen, Joy Martin, Eileen McEnaney, Jessica Mink, Keith Morgan, J. P. Tuttle, and Lorie White.

See all of the submitted photos.
