Focus on the Moment: Boston Herald Photography At Suffolk University's Adams Gallery


Photos in the exhibit portray the whole range of human experience, celebrating the joy – and sorrows -- of everyday life.

They depict moments of historical importance and individual emotion. Celebrities and neighbors are depicted with equal dignity.

Bobby Orr flies through the air once more in a photograph that has become a sports icon. The roiling emotions of the busing era are recalled in a photo of the American flag being used as a weapon. These photos from the Herald's award-winning photography team show the wonders of nature, the courage of soldiers and the curiosity of small children.

The exhibit includes color and black-and-white images from Boston, the region and the world, along with a selection of the Herald's Pulitzer-Prize-winning photographs.

"At the Boston Herald, getting a special photo that tells a story is not just a goal, it's a mandate," said the newspaper's publisher, Patrick J. Purcell.  “'Focus on the Moment' reflects the talent and dedication of our hardworking photo staff."

Focus on the Moment: Boston Herald Photography will run from Dec. 12, 2005, through Feb. 10, 2006.
