Progress [II]

leftover_peas

More work from my students at Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University. In Progress [I], the goal was to construct and photograph a situation or tableau that occupied a relatively small space. This time around, the class was forced to look far beyond the tabletop. The challenge was to modify (not vandalize) an interior or exterior space and photograph the results. City streets; apartment bathrooms, bedrooms and livingrooms; attics, basements, woods and waterways were all temporarily modified. The following students have been kind enough to allow me the opportunity to share what they’ve created. More will be posted as it becomes available. Take a look and you will understand why I will miss this group when school ends in two weeks.
