Manifest: BA + BFA
A pathway of endless possibilities is before our graduating students as their professional careers take flight. Each student presented in the 2014 Manifest BA and BFA exhibition has dedicated hours of hard work in building the foundation of their future success as image-makers and global citizens.
This exhibition is a manifestation of the diverse skill sets that students learn
at Columbia College Chicago Photography. Image makers align themselves with the lyricism of fine art, social awareness of documentary, with the glamour of fashion alongside commercial photography’s precision. Each of the photographs in this exhibition has a story to tell about their subjects as well as their makers’ personal visions and concerns as visual communicators.
Our students learn the wide gamut of photography from some of the best educators and professionals in the photography industry. Through conventional classes and lecture series, to the ever-demanding experiential opportunities such as internships, location assignments, and collaborative learning, students finesse their talents to meet the future head-on. The valuable peer collaborations that these students have developed in the creative community that is Columbia will be an enduring support system
in the next stage of their pursuit of excellence.
Columbia College Chicago Photography is proud to present this survey of well-executed and engaging body of works by the next generation of emerging artists and industry leaders.
