About the author

Bruce Myren is an artist and photographer based in Cambridge, MA. He holds a BFA in photography from Massachusetts College of Art and Design and earned his MFA in studio art, with a concentration on photography, from the University of Connecticut, Storrs in 2009. In 2012, he completed a program in teaching and learning sponsored by the Rhode Island School of Design in association with Brown University. Shown nationally and recently featured in Fraction Magazine, Myren has been included in group exhibitions at the Houston Center of Photography, TX and the William Benton Museum of Art, CT, among other venues. His latest solo exhibitions include showings at the Workspace Gallery, NE; the Special Collections Gallery of the Jones Library, MA; the Danforth Museum of Art, MA; and Gallery Kayafas, MA, where he is represented. Myren has presented lectures and overseen panels at the national conferences of the College Art Association and the Society for Photographic Education. Currently, Myren is a Critic at RISD and Adjunct Faculty at the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University. He has also taught at Amherst College and UConn and is presently the Chair of the Northeast Region of the Society for Photographic Education. In his work, Myren investigates issues of place and space, often via the exploration and employment of various locative systems, either literal or metaphoric. He is most interested in how macro perceptions relate to micro experiences of land and landscape. Myren's recent series include a photographic investigation of the Fortieth Parallel of latitude; a piece documenting the view from every place he has lived to where he lives now; and a study via photographs, audio, and video of the poet Robert Francis’s one-person house in the woods of Amherst, MA.
