Ways of Seeing: Vermont High School Photography Student Exhibit

Exhibit Opens November 8th
4 November 2011 - 25 November 2011
Juror: Shane Lavalette

Juror's Choice by Rhye Tempest

As part of our community outreach, Darkroom Gallery is hosting our second Vermont High School Student only juried photography exhibit. We are organizing this effort with the help of Mt. Mansfield Union High School Photography teacher Steve Miller at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

In his famous essay on art criticism, John Berger wrote, “Every image embodies a way of seeing.” A photographer’s “way of seeing” is reflected in his or her choice of subject, use of light and compositional technique. The final photograph is an image filtered through the artist’s unique perspective. The photograph not only communicates what we see, but what we think, believe, and feel. Juror Shane Lavalette challenges Vermont’s high school photographers to share their unique visions at this year’s student exhibition, “Ways of Seeing.”

Juror's Statement:

Jurying this exhibition brought me back to when I was in high school and fell in love with photography. I’ve always been fascinated by how a photographic print, a mechanical record of light and time, can reflect the thoughts and feelings of the maker.  Seeing establishes our place in the world, and how we see things is determined by our experience or who we are as individuals. This exhibition brings together the work of twenty-five young artists that have also discovered this extraordinary medium, and have offered their unique ways of seeing for us to behold.
