Snapped! Senior Exhibition Series Begins with Emily Low and Devlin Shand

Last night marked the first of many opening receptions for the Visual Arts Senior Thesis Series. Emily Low and Devlin Shand, Senior photography students, showcased their work and celebrated with friends, family and faculty in FCLC’s Center Gallery.

Emily’s photographs, entitled “agonistic”, are laid out on the wall like a flowing, choreographed dance. They depict classically beautiful, intertwined human forms in black and white. Drawn from her experience as a former member of the Royal Ballet, Emily’s photographs also illustrate the pain and contorted nature of dance.

Devlin’s photographs, entitled “un.Feigned”, are un-retouched images of “real women” in personalized fashion shoots (although all models share in the vibrant red lipstick). These images challenge not only typical fashion models and photographs, but also the definition of beauty, age and individuality.

The show will be on display in the Center Gallery until April 8.
