Our meetings now reach a global audience and draw on a photographers from all parts of the world to present their work and foster discussion. Presenters have included internationally renowned photographers such as Ed Kashi, Susan Meiselas, Rania Matar, and Barbara Davidson as well as photographers local to the Boston area.
