Thought-Provokers: Brookline, Brighton, Allston

Boston has always had an artistic soul.  The culture and heritage of our city, like most great cities, owes a tremendous debt to the arts community.  Supporting local art is something we care deeply about and we’d like to do everything we can to help the local arts community thrive.  Unfortunately, too often media attention is monopolized by corporate interests and tabloid gossip – but culture doesn’t come from a focus on celebrity breakups it comes from a focus on the arts.

Below, you’ll find some incredible artists from in and around Back Bay, Beacon Hill & South End that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

I’ve been a photographer for over 13 years. I started shooting whitewater rafting trips. I got that job because I started with the company as a whitewater rafting guide. I was able to be great at capturing rafts coming through whitewater rapids because I knew their job, I knew how to convey the excitement of those moments through still images. Read more>>

Ever since a young age, I was always drawn to creative things. You know the typical “I want to be an artist when I grow up kinda thing” I loved to paint using bright colors and I was always drawing women with big eyes and crazy hair But I found my true love when I found disposable cameras and film… I was taking pictures of everything, (specifically nature, and my friends as models) I would go through so much film, that I had to wait weeks until my mom would get them developed for me one by one. Read more>>
