  • A photo collection titled "Carnival" were submitted by Brittany McCabe '09.

     

Showcasing students’ creativity, the fourth annual Brooks College House All-Student Photography Exhibition opened Thursday, April 2, in the Kreisel Lobby of the Roschel Performing Arts Center.

The competition was open to students from all College Houses. Twenty-eight student photographers submitted 104 photographs to be judged. Of those, 33 photos will be on display through Friday, April 17.

“We’re seeing the works of our most creative students,” said Brooks House Prefect Roger Godin, who organized the competition. “This gives the students the chance to see art through the camera lens.”

The winners of this year’s competition are:

Brittany McCabe ’09, first place;

Alexander Krajkowski ’09, second place; and

Jessica Doe ’09, third place.

Receiving honorable mention are Ashley Cohen ’09, Craig Harris ’09, Erin Jaffe ’09 and Valerie Pusateri ’09.

Photography, McCabe said, “is an exciting medium to express your ideas and visions of the world around you.”

Robert Lowing, associate professor of art at Millersville University and a noted local photographer, judged the competition.

Rick Kent, professor of art & art history, and Jack Heller, Brooks College House don and associate professor of psychology, first proposed the competition in 2005, the year the College Houses were established, to promote creative expression in the houses.
