Funeral Home ExhibitFor this series of photographs, Corey Hendrickson turned his camera on the interiors of funeral homes. "I wanted the wallpaper, curtains and couches to speak for themselves," says Hendrickson. "In these somber environs, I gathered information about the human condition by recording the careful arrangement of everyday objects." Hendrickson says he "approached each home the way an archaeologist would, and took care to document my findings while not disturbing the setting." And, he says, he found "the palette and décor remained surprisingly consistent." He adds, "Funeral homes are created as a sanctuary for grief and loss. My work documents this last meeting place between the deceased and their kin." Hendrickson received a master of fine arts degree in photography from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. He currently lives in central Vermont and works throughout New England. (Text from the Griffin Museum)

"The Farm" - Photographs by Rich perry
The Griffin Museum at the Cambridge Homes
360 Mount Auburn St., Cambridge
Opening reception: 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 16

The Farm Exhibit.jpgDue to an "overwhelming visual life" that moves at a fast pace, Rich Perry believes people "rarely take the time to appreciate what we see." He says, "Using a camera forces a photographer to be aware of those visual images that make up our lives and to stop and reflect on them and see them in a new and meaningful way." The photos in this exhibit were taken between March 2010 and April 2011 on a small organic farm in Norwich, Vermont, which is self-sustaining "through careful and loving land and animal management," Perry says. "I spent a good deal of time just sitting quietly and watching the animal and human cycles of a day and taking in the warm and committed relationship between them." A former schoolteacher and administrator, Perry has been concentrating on photography the past few years. (Text from the Griffin Museum)

Life and wildlife in Madagascar
For years before I started college, I knew I wanted to spend a semester studying abroad, but I wasn't sure where. By my junior year at Brandeis, I made up my mind to travel somewhere off the beaten path, and, of course, Madagascar is pretty far off the beaten path for someone like me....

Photography apps for your phone
