Chosen from the class of 2017, these alumni from the BFA Photography and Video Department exemplify the diversity of practice that the program cultivates and the medium encourages. Despite this pluralism, the work is unified by a spirit of invention and a restless form of inquiry, as well as being deeply informed about the contemporary photographic conversation.
