PH_ashion 121 Closing Reception

PH_ashion 121 is an exhibition of photographs created last fall by students studying fashion photography and portraiture with Tom Winchester.

During this class, students collaborated with the local creative community in order to develop a portfolio representative of an individual style.

This involved working alongside models, stylists, make-up artists, and hair stylists.

New-York-City-based photographer, Sloan Laurits, also visited the class, which provided insight in to today’s industry.

The closing reception offers an opportunity to celebrate these students and the local creative community.
