GTL Exhibits

Photo by Sarah Garner '20

Student Photography Exhibition

A collection of black and white photographs printed in the darkroom by Elmira College students will be exhibited in the Gannett-Tripp Library lobby showcases from November 16, 2018 to January 11, 2019. Photographers include Calinda Ceterski ’22, Jamie Dorsey ’21, Nate Ferrick ’22, Sarah Garner ’20, Anna Grazioso ’20, Mira Hailu-Martinez ’20, Matilda Kennedy-Butler ’19, Colin Morrison ’19, Kaylene Sauschuck ’22, Emily Selbert ’20, and Erica VanNostrand ’20.

Pictured above is a traditional film photo of a woman's legs taken at sunset by Sarah Garner '20. Sarah is better known for her Elmira College career in women's softball, and this year, women's basketball. Her photographic work demonstrates the idea that in both sports and photography, a good eye and steady hand are essential to success.

Sarah and her classmates photographed throughout the fall term with traditional film cameras. They learned to process negatives and print their images in a traditional darkroom setting before mounting final prints for portfolio presentation. Websites featuring both their traditional photos as well as digital images will be available at the end of Term I at

The student photos can be seen during regular library hours.
