This exhibition is curated, selected and designed by the Fall 2009 Photography ARTS208 class. The process of bringing together the various final projects from the class ended up going through two major stages. The first stage sought to connect the work thematically. After many conversations, flow charts and heated discussions it became clear to connect these pictures through small but significant visual relationships. What results is a wide circle approach to looking at these pictures, rather than a straight line.
Look At Me is a phrase commonly used by photographers but in this case it serves as a request on many levels: to look at the individual projects, how they relate immediately to the neighboring projects, but also how they fit into a bigger whole, connected by subtle visual links.
