This event has ended.

With the artists approaching their work from starkly different backgrounds and points of view, the result is a mélange of subjects and perspectives. The common denominator, however, is a fundamental one: the artists' love of photography. Nine images, one by each artist, will be presented at Capricious Space and three other exhibitions of the class’ work will be shown over the coming months at locations in New Haven, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles.

About the photographers:

Dru Donovan (b. St. Paul, MN 1981) In black and white, she photographs
daily rituals of the body through points of display and performance. In
this, Donovan attempts to find the intersection between a reality that
exists and an imagined one she creates.

David La Spina (b. Cincinnati, OH 1981) La Spina examines the social and architectural history of Mamoroneck, New York as an allegory for the state of the greater contemporary landscape.

Justin Leonard (b. Miami, FL 1979) Leonard is interested in adopting a
condensed working method combining his own visual language with his
environment in unanticipated ways.

Catharine Maloney (b. Austin, TX 1982) Fueled in part by desire to
construct private obsessions, Maloney’s selected photo is from a series in which she compulsively re-creates a picture of her boyfriend taken last summer. Using other men as surrogates, she attempts to re-live the moment.

Caitlin Price (b. Washington, DC 1980) Inspired by the ideas and themes
surrounding boredom, presentation, leisure and vulnerability, Price is
currently investigating how these themes manifest in images of women.

Colin Smith (b. Rockford, IL 1980) Smith's photographs are about a tone- a tone of unease, something reacting to something else, a tone that is almost the exact replica of what he hears when his head hums. He wants his work to elicit feeling, to seep and emote. The results are physical extensions of his world view.

Elaine Stocki (b. Winnipeg, Canada 1979) Elaine photographs groups of
people in New Haven, CT.

Ka-Man Tse (b. Kowloon, Hong Kong 1981) Moving between moments public and private, observed and imagined, her photographs and videos are a proposition of possibility and intimacy.
