Photography review

Wide world of lives, living in annual ‘Exposure’ show

This is the 18th iteration of Exposure, the annual juried exhibition at the Photographic Resource Center at Boston University. It runs through July 27. Some 200 photographers submitted their work for consideration this year. Eight photographers were chosen by Karen E. Haas, the Museum of Fine Arts’ Lane Curator of Photographs.

The point of a show like this is twofold: merit and diversity — put another way, good pictures and a variety of them. That said, the images this year do have two things in common (beside quality, of course). They’re all in color and they’re all on the large size, ranging from 18 inches by 12 inches (Keiko Hiromi’s portraits of drag queens preparing to go on stage at Jacques Cabaret, in the Theatre District) to 50 inches by 40 inches (Tara Sellios’s allegorical renderings derived from Rodin’s sculpture “The Gates of Hell”).
