The School of Photography

Photographic Storyteller Gallery

Each student photographer in this gallery has found their voice. They use the language of photography to tell us something specific—to tell us a story, visually.

Take some time to explore these virtual walls. Here, you’ll find stories about:

Grit. Artist vision. Compassion. A technical command of the medium. Injustice. Imagination. A personal aesthetic. Commercial viability. Pain. Attitude. Bliss. And so much more.

“Spring Show is a very powerful event. It helps students really place themselves as professionals in the industry and also get practice as to what it takes to start showing their work publicly.”

—Adrienne Pao, Director, School of Photography
