A group of Black Hills State University photography students are exhibiting more than 150 of their favorite images taken during the fall semester in a series titled “Uncommon Perspectives Exposed.”

 

The photographs, taken by students in the Contemporary Issues in Photography course, are on display in the University’s Photographers Gallery in the lower level of Jonas Hall. The gallery is open 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The exhibition will be on display through Jan. 29.

 

“This exhibition is the result of a semester’s work from some of our most creative, talented and advanced photography students,” said Steve Babbitt, BHSU professor of mass communication/photography.

The Contemporary Issues in Photography course challenges students to choose a specific personal theme or project to work on during the semester. The photographs included in this exhibition are the culmination and presentation of these projects. The subject matter is wide-ranging and diverse, said Babbitt.

 

The students have also published a companion book for the exhibition which is on display and available for purchase in the gallery. Each student also chose 20 of their own photographs and designed and self-published an individual book of finished images. These books will also be on display.

 

Student photographers included in the exhibition are: Ian Craig, psychology major from Rapid City; Danielle Donald, photography major from Gillette, Wyo.; Carissa Doolittle, art major from Midland;  Ashley Grable, corporate communication major from Rapid City; Alex Eichler, mass communication major from Rapid City; Shelby Hartung, mass communication major from Hitchcock; Rianna Hotz, environmental physical science major from Hot Springs; Lindsay Mader, mass communication major from New Underwood; Kaitlyn Martin, mass communication major from Fort Pierre; Sydney Pollack, mass communication major from Alliance, Neb.; Colby Smith, mass communication major from Quinn; Randi Spradley, mass communication major from Dickinson, N.D.; Lindsay Uhrich, art major from Custer; Andel Van Der Westhuizen, psychology major from Eagle Butte; and Desiree Willar, mass communication major from Rapid City.
