The First of 4 Shows Featuring Thesis Projects from the Class of 2008 Opens January 22

An exhibition featuring approximately 50 works in photography, digital imaging, and multimedia by nine graduating seniors from the class of 2009 in the Department of Photography & Imaging at the Kanbar Institute of Film & Television will open January 22. It will remain on view at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts through February 14, 2009.

Entitled, SHOW ONE 2009, the show is the first in a series of four exhibitions that will eventually showcase the work of the entire graduating class in a BFA exhibition. It is installed in the Gulf + Western Gallery (rear lobby) and the 8th Floor Gallery at 721 Broadway (at Waverly Place). Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays, and noon to 5 p.m. Saturdays. Admission is free. Photo identification is required for access to the building. For further information, call 212.998.1930 or visit www.photo.tisch.nyu.edu.

The exhibition features Stephanie Broad’s black-and-white large format images of urban construction, which represent the loss of what was and the anticipation of what is to come; Julia Burlingham presents a series of four books and posters in which the surreal, exotic, and sculptural elements of photography are explored in the fashion of autobiography, mystery, and free association; Katherine Carey presents Every time I landed here, a body of work that speaks to the poetic and ephemeral nature of beauty in the everyday; Erica Dobin’s photographs, a collaborative effort by five individuals, focus on everyday life in Cuba and depict medical care, family, and religion; Moudy Elkammash’s color photographs can be described as uneasy but beautiful landscapes that depict the world’s impending end; Bryan Gursky exhibits a selection of photographs from his fashion portfolio; Jordan Reznick’s Still Life is an uncanny meditation on death as the untold fable that escapes our fallible understanding; Katelyn Roof presents a multimedia construction, “If my brain was a room, it would look like this — flashing colors, chaos, pulsing images, and static on the insides of my eyelids”; Kimberly Schreiber’s Vibrations, Exposed Hallucinations, and Migrations from the Womb to the Tomb is a mixed media installation exploring travel within interior and exterior worlds.


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.
