DSC_0253_panopticon_©cesaralsinaWhile enjoying Boston, Michelle planned a visit to a gallery dedicated to contemporary, modern and vintage photography, Panopticon Gallery, located inside the world known Hotel Commonwealth, developed by Boston University. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Jason, gallery owner.

Panopticon Gallery, which opened to the public in 1971, is one of the oldest fine art photography galleries in the United States.

Influenced by its own history and by the top skills of its owner, a photography collector himself, this charming gallery exhibits unique works of art, some from well known photographers, such as Harold Feinstein and Stephen Sheffield, among others.

Jason was a superb host to our visit: Knowledgeable, friendly, relaxed, informative. He gave us interesting bits of history about some of the photographers and photos on exhibition, and about the gallery itself. He took over the gallery in 2010.

I like to capture bits of the places we go. I try to engage with other visitors, or talk to the people that run places. This time, the man in charge of the gallery opened to frank conversation. I was happy that he didn’t mind me taking some candid photographs.

For these photos, I held my breath (no, I do not carry a tripod all the time): With my old Nikon D40, I shot at a slow 1/30, f/4.5, ISO 200, except Michelle’s pict, for which I had to go to ISO 800.

If you like fine art photography, this is a place not to miss when you’re in Boston.
