Boston Uncornered Project
The Boston Uncornered Photo Project Exhibit is a series of 30 remarkable, large-scale black and white portraits. These portraits are of an unconventional mix: former gang members paid to pursue college degrees, as well as renowned public figures. The ambition of showing these groups side by side is to remind the viewer that anyone and everyone has experienced the feeling of being cornered. And that just the right intervention can change this, no matter who you are.
This meaningful photography installation therefore reveals the universal experience of what it means to be Uncornered. Through bold portraits, photographer John Huet has captured the humanity of a broad range of people, sharing in their own words a moment when they felt cornered and how they became Uncornered.
The Boston Uncornered Photo Project exhibit was created pro bono by PJA Advertising + Marketing in partnership with College Bound Dorchester, and Boston Seaport by WS Development.To hear the stories of the portrait subjects in their own voices, visit the online audio tour bostonseaport.xyz/learn
