Former Boston Globe deputy director of photography Jim Wilson died Nov. 3, 2022, of cancer. We're deeply saddened by this loss and send our condolences to his family and friends.

Bill Greene wrote to the Globe newsroom about Wilson: "Former deputy director of photography Jim Wilson peacefully passed away at home after a long battle with cancer.

A native of Lynn Mass., he began his career at the Globe as a staff photographer in 1983. Jim helped coordinate all the big events in our coverage. We knew we were always in good hands with his steady hand on the tiller."

The Globe has published an article about his life and there is an obituary online. There is a visitation Nov. 11, 2022, from 5 to 8pm at F. S. Roberts & Son Funeral Home in Rowley, MA, and a funeral mass at 11 am on Nov. 12, 2022, at Our Lady of Hope Church in Ipswich, MA.

Starting May 12, 2022, the Boston Press Photographers Association installed the second annual outdoor exhibition in the organization’s 96 year history, featuring the award-winning images from the 2021 annual Pictures of the Year Contest. Hundreds of photographs and stories by over 20 photojournalists were on view in Boston’s Copley Square from May 12 through May 26, 2022, followed by a showing at Jamaica Pond (near the boat house) in Jamaica Plain from May 26 through June 11. The images were displayed on eight separate six-foot by six-foot "photo cubes." More info and pictures of the exhibition can be seen on the BPPA website.

GBH News' Director of Photography Meredith Nierman and Boston Globe Staff Photographer Jessica Rinaldi spoke with Executive Editor of GBH News Lee Hill about the stories behind the Boston Press Photographers Association Pictures of the Year at an in-person event at the Boston Public Library. You can watch the video on youtube.
