Olive Pierce began shooting black and white photographs in the late 1940s in Poland; she has studied with Berenice Abbott and Paul Caponigro.  This retrospective of her work depicts strong, in-your-face photographs of urban life in Cambridge, MA; the hard working lives of Maine lobstermen and their families; and, the tenuous lives of children in Iraq. The exhibit also includes “Fern’s Last Days” a DVD on the death of a Maine lobsterman as told by his family. Catch the premier showing of Fern's Last Days at this event.
