Thought you might like a roundup of some photo-related events and exhibits to check out over the New Year's weekend:

> The exhibit “Interpreting East Somerville”, featuring photos of that neighborhood, is on display at Somerville City Hall through the end of January. More information

> "Keeping Time" is a group exhibition at the Photographic Resource Center at Boston University featuring images that reflect concepts of time, duration, and cycles -- human, celestial, and photographic. Through Sunday, Jan. 25. More information

> If you're in the mood for something a bit off-beat, check out the new Institute of Contemporary Art on the Boston waterfront while taking in Gerard Byrne's multimedia exploration of the Scottish legend of the Loch Ness monster. Byrne, an Irish artist presenting his first US solo museum exhibit, combines black and white photographs of Loch Ness, excerpts from reports of "eyewitness" accounts, and a film projection of grainy footage shot on the lake's banks. Through Sunday, March 1. More information
