The 2012 Flash Forward Festival is quickly approaching and I took a walk around the Battery Wharf Harborwalk to check out this year’s outdoor exhibitions — fun stuff!

Fan favorites are sure to be the Fenway Park photos in honor of its 100th anniversary, presented by the Griffin Museum of Photography. Also on the Harborwalk, Andrew Rowat shows photographs of “Contextural Barcelona” while Jan von Holleban brings forth “Dreams of Flying.”

On the columns of the Fairmont Battery Wharf building, Alinka Echeverria presents “The Road to Tepeyac,” a photographic typology of the backs of Catholic pilgrims on their journey to the Basilica de Guadalupe in Mexico City. It’s easy to miss, but if you look behind the Water Taxi station, Kerry Shaw shows a Japanese scene with brilliant cherry blossoms.

I took some snapshots of the exhibitions below and check out this website for more information on the artists and presentations. The festival starts up on Thursday, June 7th and runs through Sunday, June 10th at the Fairmont Battery Wharf. It is all open to the public and free!
