Last year three students from SART 4700 were published and Laurel Barr received an Honorable Mention! The above photo is by Laurel. (taken during Assignment Two: Environmental portrait)
Anyone doing environmental portraiture for their final? Mostly Lauren, because you’re working with people and their possessions! This artist travelled around the world and photographed children with their most prized possessions over the course of 18 months. These might be nice images to look at in terms of arrangement people with objects.
