DEVELOP THEIR EYE: Work by the Students of John Vigg

Photography by the students of Brookdale Community College Photography Class with John Vigg

Students in this exhibition are: Rebecca Berkowitz, Christine Burke, Crista DeAngelis, Tyler Lee, Bartlett Lentini, Ellie Moss, Jonathan Arboleda Rodriguez, Jarod Simmons, Thomas Smith and Vincent Villapando.

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 students eye.
They now have the skills to lead the viewers eye to DEVELOP ways of peering into the stories their art is telling.
In this work, each students work communicates evolving ideas and meanings only photography can expose.

John Vigg is an adjunct professor at Brookdale Community College, an artist and designer working in central NJ. He owns a creative design agency, heads up a cooperative art space.  He also ran a photography gallery for budding photographers since the early 2000’s.  His current project is researching and exploring the NJ Pine Barrens to photograph, track and record its larger environments.
