WINCHESTER — Juried photography shows generally come in two types. One prefers to go with fewer photographers, allowing for more images from each. Call this the portfolio approach. The Photographic Resource Center at Boston University’s annual “Exposure” show, in the spring, and next month’s “NEPR Showcase” would be examples. Or a show can maximize the number of photographers by having just a single work from each participant. Call this the multi-solo approach. Each type of show has much to recommend it.
This year’s “Juried Exhibition” at the Griffin Museum of Photography demonstrates how well the one-from-each approach can work. It runs through Sept. 2, as do two other shows, “The Quiet: Photographs by Alysia Macaulay” and “Collected Visions,” an exhibit of photographs by several area high school students.
