About Dorchester
map
Dorchester Massachusetts is Boston's largest neighborhood and also its oldest, founded just a few months before the City itself.

The Neponset River provided the power for many manufacturing mills located in the lower mills section of Dorchester which is rich in history of the industrial age.

Today Dorchester retains its diversity and with the multi-family homes retains its suburban like feel.

Dorchester is home to the University of Massachusetts and the John F. Kennedy Library located at the tip of Columbia Point and visible from interstate 93.

Take Great Photos of your Kids (with any camera)

 

Have you ever wondered how great photographers get amazing photos of kids time after time?  Is it their multi thousand dollar camera?  Or their art school degree? Or their winning personality?  And more importantly, why don't your photos look like that?

This class is designed to give you tips and tricks to improve the photos you take of your kids with any camera.  You instructor (full time professional portrait photographer Jamison Wexler) will share his decade of experience showing you easy to understand and implement tips and tricks for taking your photos to the next level.  From which camera settings to use for the best results, to how to properly frame the photo for best visual appeal, to where to look for the best lighting that will make your photos shine.

No previous photographic knowledge required, and no fancy camera either (please, no camera phones, though).  Bring what you have.  Looking to purchase a new camera?  I'll have a number of cameras on display for you to handle, from the most basic consumer cameras to the most advanced professional.  I'll cover the pros and cons of each.

Finally, after we are done talking, I'll give you a hands on demonstration with a live child model.

This charter class will take place at my gallery in Framingham, MA, and is limited to 6 people.

 The cost is $45 per person.



When: May 18, 2014 1 PM to May 18, 2014 3 PMin Framingham, Massachusetts (Sun, 18 May 2014 13 )
"Gauntlet" Parkour Workshop Series - #1 Cambridge

This workshop series is designed to help share the ethos and spirit of parkour training as practiced by the original French founders of the discipline.  These individuals have been training for 20+ years and as they reach their early-mid 40’s they are continuing to push their bodies and minds in ways that most people would find impossible.  This has been enabled largely due to the intensive conditioning and technical workouts that they do on a regular basis.  Come join other participants from around the Boston parkour community for a great workout and a unique training opportunity with experienced coaches from around the world.

 

Worskhop #1 (Cambridge): Riverside Press Park, Cambridge - Saturday May 3rd

Workshop #2 (Boston): Nashua St Park, Boston - Sunday June 8th


Note: While this workshop is open to everyone, participants are forewarned that it will be made up of substantial amounts of physical and mental training and therefore is not for the faint of heart.



Guest Coaches:

Sasa Sevo (Skochy Parkour, Croatia)

Sasa joins us from Zagreb, Croatia, where he co-directs the Parkour Skola and teaches classes and workshops throughout the region. Sasa also helped to create the Skochypstiks brand, which specializes in parkour and movement apparel.  He has trained extensively with Laurent Piemontesi, one of the original Yamakasi, and is known for his unique conditioning exercises.

 

Evan Beyer (Zero Gravity Parkour, New Mexico)

Evan joins us from Las Cruces, New Mexico where he has been teaching and training for the last few years.  Evan's high technical level is matched by his equally high coaching acumen and he currently teaching in Boston through the "Coaching Exchange Network" established by Parkour Generations Americas.  He has a strong martial arts and tumbling background which he often includes in his workouts.

 

What to Bring:

- Weather-appropriate clothing (we'll be outside regardless of the weather)

- Lots of water

- Small snacks to help keep energy levels up throughout the day (fruits, nuts, energy bars…)

- A spare shirt (recommended)

- Lots of energy!

Dave Bromberg Big Band
He’s played with everyone, he’s toured everywhere, he can lead a raucous big band or hold an audience silent with a solo acoustic blues. Bromberg’s sensitive and versatile approach to guitar-playing earned him jobs playing the Village “basket houses” for tips, the occasional paying gig, and lots of employment as a backing musician for Tom Paxton, Jerry Jeff Walker and Rosalie Sorrels, among others. He became a first-call, “hired gun” guitarist for recording sessions, ultimately playing on hundreds of records by artists including Bob Dylan (New Morning, Self Portrait, Dylan), Link Wray, The Eagles, Ringo Starr, Willie Nelson, and Carly Simon. Bromberg’s range of material, based in the folk and blues idioms, continually expanded with each new album to encompass bluegrass, ragtime, country and ethnic music, and his touring band grew apace. By the mid-’70s, the David Bromberg Big Band included horn-players, a violinist, and several multi-instrumentalists, including David himself. Among the best-known Bromberg Band graduates: mandolinist Andy Statman, later a major figure in the Klezmer music movement in America, and fiddler Jay Ungar (who wrote the memorable “Ashokan Farewell” for Ken Burns’ PBS documentary, “The Civil War”). David’s new album is entitled Use Me, which features David collaborating with friends like John Hiatt, Levon Helm, Los Lobos, Tim O’Brien, Vince Gill, Widespread Panic, Dr. John, Keb’ Mo’ and others.

Hometown
Harvard Film Archive
Fri., May 23, 2014, 9:30 – 10:45 p.m.

Mizoguchi’s first foray into sound was a first as well for the Japanese cinema, comparable to The Jazz Singer as a historic and technological milestone while similarly compensating for its part-talkie limitations by offering a series of over-determined song numbers which emerge as the emotional heart of the film. Hometown justified its technological gambit with a melodramatic story of a singer’s Mephistophean pact with fame, tested by the devotion of a loyal woman standing by his side. Casting popular tenor Yoshie Fujiwara in the main role was a costly gamble by Nikkatsu studio which offered clear evidence of Mizoguchi’s privileged stature within the Japanese film industry.

Sansho the Bailiff
Harvard Film Archive
Sun., May 25, 2014, 4 – 6:05 p.m.



Sansho the Bailiff is both one of Mizoguchi’s most accessible works and one of his most sublime, a highpoint among postwar Japan’s jidai-geki films set in the medieval past. The narrative impassively follows two families caught up in sweeping cycles of rise and fall, betrayal and resignation, as Mizoguchi’s tracking shots both entrance with their majesty and shock with surprise. “Perhaps more than anything, this is a film about memory, and a film in which forgetting is the original sin. Working with master cameraman Kazuo Miyagawa (who also shot Rashomon and Floating Weeds), Mizoguchi creates an aestheticized world and a cosmic order which exists beyond the characters (and often in opposition to the suffering they undergo).” — Tom Gunning
