It’s been a good time for juried photography shows. The Photographic Resource Center at Boston University’s “Exposure 2013” closed a week ago. Danforth Art’s “New England Photography Biennial” opens in September. And the Griffin Museum of Photography’s “19th Juried Exhibition” runs through Sept. 1.
Like any good juried show, the Griffin exhibition is about variety and quality rather than uniformity or thematic purity. The 41 photographers with work in the show have one thing in common, says juror Kathy Ryan, director of photography for The New York Times Magazine: “faith in photography’s ability to tell stories.” Beyond the photographs being mostly color and mostly big, pretty much anything goes.
