Over the last 20 years, renowned Boston artist Barbara Bosworth has made photographs of her family around her childhood home in Novelty, Ohio, and at other locations significant to her family. Be among the first to see these touching images that explore the joy of youth and the wistfulness of aging, memory and the passage of time. Also on view, delicate natural objects collected by Bosworth’s family show a continuity of interest in nature across generations.
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.
