Light Work is pleased to present the “2018 Newhouse Photography Annual” featuring work by photography students in S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. Juried by Lauren Steel (Visuals Director, Verbatim Agency), the exhibition is a collection of more than 25 photographs by Newhouse School, Multimedia Photography, and Design Department students. Thematically diverse and representing various approaches to photographic practice and technique, this collaboration showcases the breadth of images that today’s students are producing. Selected works will be on view in the Hallway Gallery at Light Work. There will be an opening reception on Thursday, March 29, 2018, from 5-7 p.m. 

The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public. Refreshments served.

Exhibiting student photographers: Marianne Barthélemy, Colleen Cambier, Bryan Cereijo, Haoyu Deng, Kathleen Flynn, Shweta Gulati, Chase Guttman, Shuran Huang, Joshua Ives, Evan Jenkins, Zachary Krahmer, Fiona Lenz, Tingjun Long, Claudia McCann, Todd Michalek, Moriah Ratner, Erika Sternard, Ashley Tucker, Austin Wallace, Cassie Zhang.

Juror Lauren Steel awarded “Best of Show” to Marianne Barthélemy for “It was Spring.” Reflecting on the selection Steel stated:

“The reason I chose this image/diptych is that the texture, color palette, lighting and composition all seemed to complement each other perfectly. It is a melancholy image that I feel is relatable in numerous situations. There is a yearning to know more but then also the ability to make up your own story, which shows how complex this image is. I was impressed with the different approaches in the overall group of images from classic Photojournalism through to Fine Art.  It is always hard to pick a favorite when there are so many different genres to choose from so for me personally I chose the one I connected with most and that my eye kept going back to.”

S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications provides the means to customize studies to meet each student’s interests and needs. As creative entrepreneurs, Newhouse students typically work in journalism, advertising, fashion, and the nonprofit world—with many choosing to work across industries—and they publish their work via numerous distribution platforms from books, magazines, and newspapers to digital options, such as smartphones, tablets, the web, cable and broadcast channels, to film festivals and gallery exhibits.
