Students graduating from the Photography and the Digital Image Bachelor of Fine Arts program at the Fashion Institute of Technology exhibited their senior thesis projects in a group-curated show on the school’s campus in May 2017, as part of the annual School of Art and Design Graduating Student Exhibition. “Refractions” was a collective showcase of individual long-term projects that directly reflect the photographic techniques and styles developed during the students’ years at FIT. Work in the show explored themes that ranged from documentary projects about tattoo artists and scientists studying the ocean to personal explorations that examine ideas of memory, power, and sexuality. The different photographic techniques employed, as well as the myriad themes explored by the students, is a reminder that photography still remains a major medium of expression and perspective.
