Babson Photography Instructor David Akiba Exhibits Work
Babson College photography lecturer David Akiba has had two local exhibits of his work. Gallery Kayafas is showing “In Plain Sight,” through June 27th; and “In Winter: Photographs, 1989-2009,” was displayed at the St. Botolph Club through mid-June.
David Akiba has been an exhibiting artist and teacher for over forty years, and his photographs can be found in various public and private collections. He has studied with Aaron Siskind and Harry Callahan, and earned a MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design.
Recently, a really nice review of David’s work by Mark Feeney appeared in The Boston Globe. That prompted me to visit the Kayafas website to see his work, which led to a podcast with the artist. Listen to David talk about his long career, how it started, and what he hopes to convey to his visual arts students.
To view David’s extraordinary work, visit Gallery Kayafas at 450 Harrison Avenue in Boston. You can call 617-482-0411 or visit www.gallerykayafas.com for information and exhibit hours.
