Four decades ago… Konica launched AUTOREFLEX — the first fully-automatic exposure control and metering through the lens (TTL) camera. That camera not only launched the “point and shoot” revolution of SLR accessibility for the masses, but — as Linda Cuccurullo’s first camera — it launched what would become for her a life-long love and passion for photography.
Over the next 40 years, Cuccurullo s award-winning photography has been exhibited extensively including two group shows (at Wheaton College and the Artists’ Representative Art Gallery) as well as almost a dozen one-woman shows, mainly in Cambridge and Boston areas. Cuccurullo won an MIT photo contest award and her images have been published and reviewed in various newspapers, catalogues and other publications.
Her images primarily document the social and architectural milieus of many countries, including Italy, France, the United Kingdom, Mexico and Indonesia. In her efforts to capture the essence of places, she has combined her passion for photography with a love of food, wine and travel.
Linda holds a BA in German and Psychology from Wheaton College and a Master of Library and Information Science from Simmons College. She also studied at Harvard Extension, Boston Architectural College, MIT and Orbitlingua in Orbetello, Italy.
Although she worked for many years as a librarian at MIT, currently she focuses on her photography at her seaside condo/studio in Hull, MA… Otherwise, Cuccurullo might be found shooting, eating and drinking at a new-found foreign destination.
