Big Heads

Monday, October 17th through Wednesday, November 2nd

  

 
 
Open to All at No Cost

Through long hours of studio time, students in the Art 371 B&W Photography course from the Western Washington University (WWU) Department of Art, collaborated to create a project entitled “Big Heads.” Using one of the oldest forms of photography, 4X5 cameras, these students created 3 large format head shots. Taking on the task of using themselves as models, working in teams, and researching imagery of contemporary 20th century photographers, the students created their own works of art.  After careful review and several test prints later, student's portrait installations can be viewed from October 17 through November 2, in the main hallway of the Fine Arts Gallery Entrance Space on Western’s Campus. Special thanks to Quinton Maldonado and Nathan Cranston for all their help and support.
