PORTFOLIO DEVELOPMENT FOR FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHERS Spring
with Ed Grossman
Ed Grossman’s passion for photography started in his youth. He still remembers being captivated watching Polaroids develop before his eyes. The way that film, chemicals, and time worked together to create a picture is something he’s never forgotten. Today, those memories of instant film inspire him to combine artistic elements into storytelling portfolios. His projects include: Sunday Drive, a nostalgic look at how his world view broadened while in the backseat of the family station wagon; Beaches Offseason, where scenes typically associated with vacation fun instead represent life’s mundane or trying experiences. And Fading American Bookstore, documenting the impact of modern times on a cultural institution. In addition to local venues, he's participated in nationally publicized exhibitions at the Griffin Museum of Photography, PhotoPlace Gallery in Vermont, and the New Orleans Photo Alliance. Online, he’s been a featured artist on Lenscratch and has appeared in The Online Photographer. Ed’s work is in private print collections throughout the country as well as the public archive of the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas - Austin. A lifelong New Englander, Ed has a B.A. from Brandeis University. He currently lives and works in Mattapoisett, MA.
