Curry College Hosts "Aftermath" - A Post-Marathon Bombing Photography Exhibit

April 16, 2014

Student Center, Shelley Hoon Keith Quiet Study Lounge


The Curry College Department of Fine and Applied Arts is proud to bring "Aftermath" to campus in the spring of 2014. "Aftermath" is a photographic reflection on the Boston Marathon Bombings of April 15, 2013, and how they affected both the people of Boston and professional photographer Joshua Touster.

"Aftermath" will be on display in the Curry College Student Center's Shelley Hoon Keith Quiet Study Lounge from January 19 through April 16. Touster will be on campus to speak about the exhibit on Thursday, February 6 at 1:00 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

About "Aftermath"

Days after the bombings, Touster began photographing the makeshift memorial sites that sprung up around Boylston Street. The series quickly took a personal turn as Touster documented the experience of being locked down in his Watertown home; helicopters circling overhead, constant television updates, SWAT teams at his front door, and the joyous street celebrations that erupted after the capture of the second bombing suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

For the next ten weeks Touster comprehensively photographed all aspects of the aftermath of the bombings. His photographic series includes: the changing makeshift memorials, the bombing sites, first responders being honored at Fenway Park, the national media covering the bombings, the Tsarnaev home, the Watertown shootout location, crowds observing moments of silence, and finally the dismantling of the memorials by City of Boston archivists.
