Photography I students showcased projects from first semester at an art show Monday during Activities.

The showcase included self portraits inspired by a mentor of the student’s choice, camera-less photograms, crumpled up magazines and surrealists pieces created by Photography I students in 2016.

Each student had one to two pieces in the gallery.

Visual arts teacher Alyssa Sherwood said that she hoped to teach students the essentials of photography and help them to find their own personal voice and unique style.

“I felt like the projects really helped me improve my composition and how [my mentor] looked at her environment influenced the way that I looked at mine,” Photography I student Isabella Huang ’19 said. “I put so much effort into all of my pieces, and I am very excited that they are up on display for everyone to enjoy.”

Sherwood said that she was very impressed with the student’s pieces and the overall turnout of the show.

“I loved the show,” Sherwood said. “I think it looked amazing. It has been such a fantastic year of students. The Feldman-Horn gallery is such a beautiful space, and it is such a special opportunity for the Photography I students to take over the whole gallery.”
