For the month of January 2016 Light Work donated 50% of proceeds from sales of John Chervinsky’s print to support The John Chervinsky Emerging Photographer Scholarship, established by The Griffin Museum of Photography following John’s passing in December 2015. We were happy to get John’s work into the hands of many collectors who we know will enjoy this print for years to come. We are also thrilled to say that we raised nearly $3,500 for the scholarship in his name. Thank you to those that supported this great cause and in doing so honored John’s legacy.
John Chervinsky is a self-taught photographer. He is also an engineer working in the field of applied physics and spent eighteen years running a particle accelerator at Harvard University. He has collaborated with museums, using accelerator technology in the analysis of art. He currently works for Harvard’s Rowland Institute, founded by Polaroid’s Edwin H. Land. Since it first opened at the Griffin Museum of Photography in 2005, his Experiment in Perspective series has been traveling the country including solo exhibits at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory Art Gallery, Batavia, IL; Michael Mazzeo Gallery, New York, NY; and Blue Sky Gallery, Portland, OR. His work is held in numerous public and private collections including the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX; Museum of Art, Portland, OR; and Fidelity Investments Collection, Boston, MA.
