If Robin Boger had understood the languages spoken in her grandparents’ homes she might not have been driven to observe so closely the life around her in order to learn what was happening.  This habit of close observation led her to search for and photograph visual markers of social and cultural behavior.

 

Her images from Cuba, Africa and Japan have been shown at the Chandler Gallery in Cambridge, MA, the Orton-Davis Gallery in Hudson, NY, the Amanda Smith Gallery in Johnson City, Texas, CubaSeen Photo Zine, and the Mill Book Gallery in Concord, NH.   She has also shown work at the Soprafina Gallery in Boston, MA, the Iris B. And Gerald Cantor Gallery at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA, and the Boston Public Library.

 

She graduated from the New England School of Photography in 1995, studied printmaking at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and was a member of Mixit Print Studio in Somerville for 10 years.

 

Her background in social science education (B.A. Oberlin College,  M.A. Duke University, M.B.A. and A.B.D. University of Chicago) and policy work in both the public and private sectors have made her aware of how societies find unique ways of dealing with universal social problems.
