“Chasing The Sparks”
Photojournalism of Roland Oxton, Stanley Forman and Robert Wilson
A new exhibition at 41Gallery features news photography from an era where unrestricted access to news events, ingenuity and a knack for being in the right place at the right time always produced great photojournalism, captured dramatic moments and often… award winning results!

“Chasing The Sparks” brings together three photographers whose work spans several decades of news photography in the greater Boston area. The photographers, all with a North Shore connection, strive to capture moments… sparks if you will, that communicate the essence of the scene unfolding before them. This exhibit showcases some of the best examples of those efforts.

Roland “Rollie” Oxton served as a US Army photo corps photographer during World War II and went on to become a Pulitzer Prize winning photographer for the Record American/Boston Herald. For almost three decades his work captured the range of human emotion from sheer terror to moments of joy and even humor.

Stanley Forman is a photojournalist and videographer whose work has won him three Pulitzer Prizes and many other awards. Stanley’s career began when his father gave him a camera almost 50 years ago. While on staff for the Boston Herald American, Stanley’s work set the standard for spot news photography creating powerful images that have stood the test of time. He continues to bring us his unique visual perspective and uncanny sense of timing as a videographer for WCVB-TV in Boston.

Robert Wilson photographed for the Cambridge Chronicle and Somerville Journal back in the mid-70’s and early 1980’s. As a staff photographer for the Somerville Journal his news and feature story work captured city life… people, parades, poodles, politics, police and fire.
