Wander past the librarian’s desk at the Honan-Allston Branch of the Boston Public Library, and you’ll stumble upon a fantastic gallery space that is currently filled by Boston Photography Center’s Neighborhood Documentary Project.

Photographs featuring life in Allston/Brighton, Brookline, the North and South Ends, Chinatown, and the Theatre District adorn the green and purple gallery walls.  The Neighborhood Project is a collaborative initiative of BPC members to document the unique neighborhoods of the metropolitan Boston area: their people, their places, and their personalities that enrich our sense of community and give us our identity.

Photographers Jim Fitts, Jean-Francois Caubet, Katherine Kominis, Sanjay Subbanna, Jonathan Fine, Alicia Carlson, and Kurt Swanson have their work on display through the end of August.  Please join them and other BPC members on Wednesday, July 7th from 5:30-7:45 p.m. for the opening reception.  The library is located at 300 North Harvard Street in Allston.  Parking is available and T accessable by the 66 and 70 bus lines.
