Creating Opportunity: Lessons In Underwater Photography

Students visiting Dr. Boger's photography exhibit

Earlier this week, a group of Boston Arts Academy (BAA) Sophomores studying Studio Art Photography visited Dr. Joshua Boger’s photography exhibit, “Bio-Fractalism: Perceiving The World In Hard Coral.” Dr. Boger, an expert scuba diver, has been a professional underwater photographer since 1998, and his current show is his 12th professional photography exhibit of his underwater photographs.

Dr. Boger shared with students his process of taking underwater photographs, how he works with light and shadows, and how he selects the photos he decides to showcase.

When talking about his work, Dr. Boger shared how he brings emotion out of the scenes he captures: “It’s not necessarily about the coral - the object you are photographing - it’s about the idea you are trying to represent.”

Dr. Boger has been a long-time supporter of arts education, our city's youth, BAA and BAA Foundation. We are grateful to him for creating opportunity for BAA's students to visit and tour the gallery, and for sharing lessons about his experience as an artist!
