Old-school photo redux: Student exhibit puts black-and-white photography in focus

Traditional black-and-white photography captured with analog cameras is the focus of a student art exhibit at the Pence Pinckney Gallery from Nov. 8 to Dec. 7, with an opening reception from 4-6 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 8. The gallery is open 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday to Friday.

The exhibition of new, black-and-white, gelatin silver photographs, most taken by advanced-level students, explores personal visions, said Bullwinkel. Students use traditional, hands-on photographic techniques and darkroom developing.
