Founded in 1881, the Boston Camera Club is one of the oldest camera clubs in the country, and is dedicated to the advancement of photography as an art and a science. The club currently has over 150 members, ranging in experience from novice to professional, from all over the greater Boston metropolitan area.
Meetings are held weekly and include photo competitions, critiques, educational lectures, and studio portrait sessions. Additionally, the club sponsors exhibitions, field trips to local points of interest, and special events and workshops led by well-known photographers.

Emily Belz is an independent photographer and educator based
in Lincoln, MA. Her photographs focus on domestic still lifes, telling stories
through the traces, objects, and slants of light that have been left behind.
Belz has exhibited her photographs widely in both solo and group exhibitions.
She is represented by Gallery Kayafas in Boston.
Belz holds a BA in photography and art history from Hampshire College (1997); an MA in community-based art education from the Rhode Island School of Design (2009); and an MFA from the New Hampshire Institute of Art (2017). She teaches classes and workshops at the Griffin Museum of Photography (Winchester, MA) and the deCordova Museum (Lincoln, MA), and is on the faculty at Lasell University (Newton, MA). Belz works privately with artists as a mentor, and specializes in reviewing and sequencing portfolios.
With 20+ years in the art world, Belz brings this experience to her role as juror for photography competitions, and as a reviewer for regional portfolio reviews. She enjoys curating exhibitions in collaboration with emerging artists in the Boston area.
We would like to thank the two generous anonymous donors whose gifts spurred the genesis of this exhibition and made it possible. We also want to thank the Boston Camera Club members below who over the past year dedicated their time and expertise to conceive, develop, and implement “The Focused Eye: Our Unique Views.”
