Leslie K. Brown leaving PRC

Leslie K. Brown, the standout curator at the Photographic Resource Center at Boston University, will be leaving her post later this summer to pursue a doctoral degree in art history, with a specialty in photography, at Boston University.

Brown consistently puts together some of the most deep-think exhibitions in the region – and her work at the PRC will be missed. I hope her studies put her on the path to a prominent post at, say, the International Center of Photography or the Museum of Modern Art, someplace where she can match her smarts with a more sizeable audience and more sizeable budget. Brown has excelled at mapping emerging trends in photography. She should be at a venue where she can help define today’s canon. And imagine what she could do with photographer retrospectives.
