Exhibit of Student Documentary Photographs in the Gammill Gallery

As part of the spring 2015 documentary photography seminar taught by Dr. David Wharton, students photographed in Oxford and, for the sake of comparison, several smaller towns in North Mississippi. They concentrated on these communities as physical places, sites of human activity and cultural spaces that reflect local life and values. A seventy-one-print exhibition of the students’ photographs will hang in Barnard Observatory’s Gammill Gallery from late August to mid-October, and here are a few samples to whet your appetite.

Student photographers include Amanda Berrios (SST MA second year), Anna Brilgance, Ashley Norwood, Gracie Sullivan, Ji Hoon Heo, Marlen Polito, and Tyler Carter.

The Gammill Gallery, located in the west wing of Barnard Observatory, is open from 9am to 5pm, Monday through Friday.
