Jules Aarons: Street Portraits 1947-1976 provides a moving retrospective of moments of everyday life, as captured by one man, whose profession was not that of photographer but rather a scientist specializing in ionospheric radio-wave propagation. Wherever his work and family took him, Aarons would go, camera in hand, eyes open to the different people, places and times he could see reflected in his 6 x 6 Rolleiflex. From the West and North Ends of Boston, where he, his wife and two sons were based for much of their lives, to Europe.
