Featuring the photographic art of over thirty students, the show highlights emerging student voices. An artist reception will be held Wednesday, December 4, from 7:30 – 9:00 p.m.
 
First year student Bryon Crawley is showing his piece, Forgotten Beauty. A graduate of Northeast High School in Philadelphia, Crawley considers photography both a hobby and possible career pathway for the future. “I just love capturing a moment that will live forever,” he explains. Crawley says he taking classes at North Lake College to gain both photography and post production skills.
 
Dan Tossing of the North Lake College Photography Department believes this biannual exhibit unlocks new learning opportunities for his students, adding, “It is really important for student artists to go through the process of showing their work. It’s great exposure, but it’s also a time for validation and inspiration. They are putting their work out there for friends, families and the public to see. It opens up a whole new opportunity for collaboration, discussion and community.”
