Photography Club Exhibits in the Rotunda

One of the most fascinating things about the art of photography is the way it allows the camera holder to make us see things we’ve never seen before, even when capturing scenes that surround us every day. That subjective magic was on display last spring when one of the most hallowed spaces on all of Grounds was transformed into its own gallery space for a group of talented photographers from throughout the University and surrounding communities. The independent, student-run Photography Club at UVA hosted The University of Virginia: Developing Perspectives, a diverse and dynamic exhibition in which photographic artists of all levels were invited to share their own unique perspectives of UVA, including but not limited to its natural and architectural beauty, its student body, and the fascinating lives and stories of all who work, live, and study there. The exhibition was organized by President Lauren Barnhorst and Exhibition Chair Nicholas Venturini and planned in coordination with UVA Arts, the Office of the Provost and the Vice-Provost for the Arts, the Rotunda, and Facilities Management. Featured here are highlights from the exhibit.
