Collaborations, our special print program features creative photographic artists partnering to imagine and produce a one of a kind print to support the Griffin Museum of Photography. We started the program last year, bringing artists together, combining their talents and creativity, to create unique prints, with the funds raised from your purchase benefitting the museum, its education, programs and exhibitions.
We are honored to see the next available print in the program from Boston based artists Caleb Cole and Jesseca Ferguson.

Caleb Cole is a Midwest-born, Boston-based artist whose work addresses the opportunities and difficulties of queer belonging, as well as aims to be a link in the creation of that tradition, no matter how fragile or ephemeral or impossible its connections. They were an inaugural resident at Surf Point Residency and have received an Artadia Finalist Award, Hearst 8×10 Biennial Award, 3 Magenta Flash Forward Foundation Fellowships, and 2 Photolucida Critical Mass Top 50 awards, among other distinctions. Caleb exhibits regularly at a variety of national venues and has held solo shows in Boston, New York, Chicago, and St. Louis, among others. Their work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Virginia Museum of Fine Art, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Newport Art Museum, Davis Art Museum, Brown University Art Museum, and Leslie Lohman Museum of Art. Caleb is represented by Gallery Kayafas, Boston.
