I'm honored to have been asked to participate in: Flash Forward Boston – The Gun Show, by curator Maja Orsic. Maja Orsic is Director of Robert Klein Gallery, a fine art photography gallery in Boston. Orsic studied Professional Writing and French & Francophone Studies at Carnegie Mellon University and worked in community programs and development at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, before starting at the gallery in 2010. With a background in writing, she is especially interested in the written word as it relates to photography; specifically, how artists choose to present themselves and their work. Director since 2013, Orsic works closely with artists and collectors, serving as a matchmaker for the two. She has recently placed works at the Fitchburg Museum of Art and the Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art. She has been a regular participant at the annual portfolio reviews at the Rhode Island School of Design and juried the 2014 Yousuf Karsh Prize in Photography, awarded by the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Orsic also runs the Instagram account @theselfiewareness, which is going to go viral any day now.
