The History of Photography (at Barrington High School)


Here it comes, people: we’re mounting an exhibit of work from students of photography (and teachers) at Borington Huge School over the decades. The work of alumni has gone in so many directions, and ‘twould be good to represent all the years in our big show, whether the pieces be from hah thkoo, art school, commercial jobs, journalistic jobs, or wherever. Send us a couple of  pieces, unmounted or framed, and we’ll get them back to you afterward.


Get in touch with us at!/bhsphoto or right here.

UPDATE: The work is accumulating nicely, and we’re still trying to get the word out to more good workers of other years. If you think of someone who should be included please don’t hesitate to have them contact us. Time is of the essence: the exhibit will be mounted on September 30! Also, a reception is now scheduled for Friday, Rocktober 11.

UPPERDATE: It’s looking as though the installation will take the better part of two days. At least four of the current and former Photography teachers will be in attendance at the reception, now confirmed as 6:30 to 8:00 on the evening of the 11th. Although participation is huge, some key alumni are still not represented, so we’ll accept whatever work for which there is room.

  1. PhotoDevoto Alison Hargreaves would like to participate.

    • We’ll count on it!

  2. How exciting! Are photos printed on metal Ok?

    • Well, yeah!

  4. No problem getting my pieces to you by then. Do I send it to BHS’s address Attn:Mr. D?

    • Sure. 616 West Main, 60010.
