The exhibition features William Arnold’s mixed media pieces from The Anlix Expedition: Stage One, which focus on the provisions from the onset of the journey and the transformation during the course of the expedition; Artemisa Clark’s 3-channel video explores the ability to endure physical stress in order to maintain an ideal; Alexandra Diczok’s color photographs explore the alienation, longing, and comfort that grows from the experience of watching others; Megan Fingleton’s Cambodia: Casualties of War explores the landmine crisis in Cambodia’s post-Pol Pot’s regime with the Khmer Rouge; Ashley Fischer’s photographs of the Applegate Valley in Oregon depict the poetic relationship between man and nature in a small rural community; Catherine Gargan’s large format photographs of zombies, in the style of “B Rated” horror movies from the late 80’s/early 90’s, question the labels of good and evil; Elena Getto presents color photographs of women in dynamically lit environments; Benjamin Jarosch’s black-and-white documentary photographs depict the edginess and intimacy of New York City’s BMX subculture; Laura Kaltman’s images draw inspiration from readings in Zen philosophy and depict various women within a sparse, surreal world somewhere between the realm of fantasy and reality; Sophie Lvoff’s color photographs call attention to airplanes in the landscape and show the beauty regarding these man-made machines; Veronica O’Hern’s gathering of assemblages show that big things don’t matter without little things; Veronica Torres’ large format portraits stem from her fantasies and portray individuals who are about to embark on voyages of self-reflection and awareness, amidst symbolically infused circumstances. And lastly, Abraham Zimroth’s black-and-white photographs show the more subtle moments of nature, often missed or overlooked by most, and focus on a moment in time and the life of a tree.

The Department of Photography and Imaging at the Tisch School of the Arts is a four-year B.F.A. program centered on the making and understanding of images. Students explore photo-based imagery as personal and cultural expression. Situated within New York University, the program offers students both the intensive focus of an arts curriculum and a serious and broad grounding in the liberal arts.
