Suzanne & Eli, Brockton, Massachusetts, 2010
From the City of Champions: A Portrait of Brockton, Massachusetts series
Website - MaryBethMeehan.com

Mary Beth Meehan is a Providence-based photographer whose work explores issues of identity, culture, and community. Her current series, City of Champions, looks at the changing post-industrial U.S. through the eyes of her hometown of Brockton, Massachusetts. The series is featured in the current issue of 6Mois Magazine and will be exhibited at the Griffin Museum of Photography in January, 2013. With support from the Massachusetts Foundation for the Humanities, twelve photographs from the project were printed as 14-foot banners and mounted on buildings in Brockton’s distressed downtown core, sparking community-wide conversations about evolving urban identities, community dislocation, and the possibilities for social change. Her work has been published in 6Mois, LeMonde, DoubleTake, The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Boston Sunday Globe. Meehan teaches at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design.
