Kate Barrett, associate photography editor at Wallpaper* magazine, served as juror to select images for Best of Show and honorable mentions. Best of Show went to Librandi-Cowan and honorable mentions went to Sherlock and Tarbell.
According to Barrett: “There was a really high standard of photography from these students. It is great to see such diversity in their styles and subject matter.”
Light Work’s close partnership with the Department of Transmedia provides art photography students with full access to Light Work’s production facilities, lectures and workshops. Many students have worked with Light Work throughout their undergraduate careers.
