Mount employee’s photo to be featured in celebrated exhibition

February 20, 2017


“Beacon Train Station at Night,” a photo by Dakin Roy, instructional media coordinator and adjunct instructor of arts and letters at Mount Saint Mary College, was selected to be part of the 2017 juried exhibition for the Vermont Center of Photography, beginning March 3.

The exhibition features 40 photographs culled from more than 800 submissions, chosen by Karen Haas, Lane Curator of Photographs at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. It covers a diverse array of photographic styles and mediums submitted by artists from across the country.

Roy’s photo is part of a series he started two years ago called “Night Moves,” a study of urban, commercial spaces. The images in the series are photographed at night using long exposures, highlighting the “odd isolation and desolation of these spaces without human inhabitants,” said Roy. “The lighting and stark landscapes carry a narrative about the modern, urban landscape, which tends to focus on efficiency and functionality over beauty and formal considerations.”

The exhibition is on display at the Vermont Center for Photography gallery from Friday, March 3, 2017 through Sunday, April 2, 2017. The center is located at 49 Flat Street Brattleboro, Vt.
