Student street photography from Florence will be displayed starting Monday, Sept. 14, on the second floor of the Administration Building.
According to the IU South Bend Arts Community Outreach Board, photographers will entertain on Thursday, Sept. 17, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. with light refreshments and discussion of their creative process.
In July, photography students studied in Florence, Italy. Associate Professor of Fine Arts Susan Moore instructed those students. She has led the trip five times.
“Street photography encompasses a broad definition that includes photo journalism and considers time and light and space,” Moore said. “We talk about all those things.”
Students also learned about art history and culture as part of the course.
There were 22 students on this trip. Each student will have one photograph on display due to the quantity of students and pictures.
“Sometimes when I look back on some of my images, it’s almost like I’m reliving shooting that photograph all over again,” Meagan Jerndt, student, wrote in an email.
“Having my work on display is a very rewarding experience. I wanted to have at least one piece of my work in an art show by the end of the year, and I’m lucky enough to have that goal completed, and getting it done by traveling to another country,” Adam Guerra, student, wrote in an email.
The display and discussion are open to the public.
