This exhibit represents a small sample of the photographic work being produced by first- and second-year students at McHenry County College.

This work was made by students staring to explore the possibilities of the photographic medium. Students employ various strategies to make the work from: exploring the places they live, turning the camera on their friends or themselves, constructing complex tableaux, or using the camera to distort the everyday. The use of photography allows for an unlimited interpretation of subject and form, these are the first attempts by young photographers trying to make their mark.
