DEVELOP THEIR EYE: Work by the Students of John Vigg

In the world of photography DEVELOP usually speaks to adding chemicals to film as a way to produce a visible image.
However, in this context, students have all made work where images DEVELOP into something more for the viewer to see.
DEVELOP, treated as a verb, loosely defines as causing to evolve or unfold gradually. This is where the concept gets interesting.
Adding direction and historic context in the classroom is the catalyst to DEVELOP the student’s eye.
They now have the skills to lead the viewer’s eye to DEVELOP ways of peering into the stories their art is telling.
Each student’s work communicates evolving ideas and meanings only photography can expose.–Photography by the students of Brookdale Community College Photography Class with John Vigg
