Perspective Gallery is pleased to present "Student Perspectives 2023," our twelfth annual juried exhibition of photography by Chicago area high school students. This year, 180 students from 15 area high schools submitted over 450 images. Of those, images by 37 students were selected for the exhibition.

Our juror this year was Aimée Beaubien, an artist living and working in Chicago. Her cut-up photographic collages, installations and artist books explore networks of meaning and association between the real and the ideal. A photographed plant, interlaced vine, woven topography merge into fields of color and pattern and back again expanding the ever more complicated sensations of reading a photograph and experiencing nature. Beaubien’s work has been exhibited and published nationally and internationally. Aimée Beaubien is an Associate Professor of Photography at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, IL where she has taught since 1997.
