Student Photography Show

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 through January 12, 2018, ushering in the first 2018 Arts Alive exhibition. On display is the work of student photographers: Jaima Cicero '18, Emily Clark '19, David Flood '19, Olivia Harnois '19, Emily Ann LaClair '19, Cierra Marino '20, Jordan Newcomb '19, Teni Sasazawa '18, and Writing Lecturer Dr. Minjeong Kim.
The students photographed throughout the fall 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. Some students have also contributed their "cameraless" photos for this exhibition. Inspired by guest artist Michelle Cade, the students arranged personal objects on both gelatin silver and cyanotype papers to create photograms. They also experimented with paper negatives by drawing images on tracing paper. These tracing paper negatives were then used with traditional photo chemicals and gelatin silver photo paper to make "cameraless" photos in the darkroom.  (For more information about Michelle Cade's visit to Elmira College, see
Pictured above is a photo taken at Watkins Glen by Jordan Newcomb '19. Experimenting with the effects of shutter speed on moving elements in a scene, she captured a spray of water droplets splashing off the rocks.
After Finals Week (December 18), student digital photography projects can be viewed along with their traditionally-created images by accessing their individual websites at this link:
