“As photographers, we’re almost obsessed or in love with objects because we photograph them,” says Kaitlyn McQuaid ’10. That’s how her Photo Workshop class came up with the name of this year’s showcase: Objectophilia.
Each of the 15 students in the course pitched ideas for their personal photography project at the start of the semester, then worked individually on the final product, coming together every few weeks for critiques. At the end of the semester, the class put together the entire exhibit themselves -- finding the space, promoting the show, displaying the art, and breaking down the display afterward.
The students’ art varied dramatically, each student having a different vision and method. “It gives you such a sense of accomplishment to be working on one project for the whole semester and then seeing everyone’s projects coming together,” McQuaid says.
