As an assignment for Digital Photography II (ARTSTUDI 275), a group of ten photographers were asked to collectively develop a theme for an exhibition and create works based on their conceptual interpretations.
In a world plagued by economic inequality and environmental issues, what does it mean to be socially responsible as an artist and image-maker? What is our personal obligation to act for the benefit of society at large? How can we create social awareness of waste, consumption, and environmental damage to evoke cultural change? With approaches ranging from visual parody to experimental methods, this exhibition critically considers questions of civic responsibility that are difficult but central to our individual roles as members of society.

Students: Jun Bae, Alyssa Diaz, Nico Garcia, Ashley Hannah, William Marshall, Annie Ng, Brandon Simmons, Andrew Solano, Julien Ueda, Melina Walling

Instructor: Jamil Hellu
