"Whose Woods," Images By Yee-Fun Yin, Opens in Potter Gallery

Photograph of a field and trees by Yee-Fun YinJoin us in Potter Gallery Thursday, May 2 from 5 pm to 7 pm for the opening of Photography Teacher Yee-Fun Yin's spring show, Whose Woods. Refreshments will be served; the event is free and open to the public. 

"I am excited to be given an opportunity to share photographs made during my sabbatical year with the Taft community and the public," says Yin. 

The work in this collection explores private land ownership through both written word and images. The images reflect Yin's unique perspective, in that he is not a landowner, himself. 

"It is an outsider view," says Yin, "yet also a personal one, reconciling a long-held yearning and desire for one's own piece of land." 

Yin notes that the writing, in the form of personal essays on land ownership contributed by several different authors, will share equal gallery space with the images. Together, he says, the words and the images will invite the readers and viewers to reflect upon their own relationship with land.

The exhibit runs May 2 through May 31. Potter Gallery is located on the Taft School campus at 110 Woodbury Road, Watertown, and is open Monday through Friday, 8 am until 5 pm when school is in session. 

The exhibit is made possible by the Andrew R. Heminway '47 Endowment Fund.
