For the past 24 years, Joe R. Parzych has been a freelance photojournalist for local newspapers, national magazines, and trade journals. Joe’s unique photographic storytelling provides an Autistic perspective to everyday objects that people overlook. Joe started as an apprentice to his grandfather, Joseph A. Parzych of Gill, MA, and Joe’s passion for local history and community has fueled his work in journalism since the days of dark-room film photography. Joe currently resides in Greenfield, MA, and you can see his work in local papers such as The Montague Reporter or the Country Folks, a national trade farming magazine. This exhibit begins our series of programming and exhibits related to the Smithsonian’s exhibit – Crossroads: Change in Rural America.
