Exhibit features photographs that spark dialogue

January 12, 2009

Leighton McWilliams' direct approach to photography and his juxtaposition of disparate images are said to create an "unconventional beauty." Erin Antognoli's black and white images of urban Washington D.C. are credited with capturing "the soul of the city." The work of both photographers will be on exhibit in the Curfman Gallery in the Lory Student Center beginning Friday, Jan. 23.

Leighton McWilliam's 'machine aesthetic' approach

Leighton McWilliams’ photo-constructs cross the border between sculpture and photography as he pairs seemingly disparate images to create a deeper dialogue between the images and the viewer.

McWilliams' direct approach to photography and his self-described "machine aesthetic" combine in an unconventionally beautiful way.

Erin Antognoli known for urban black & whites

Antognoli’s urban series of black and white photographs stem from her need for interaction with her environment.

Armed only with a Holga camera, an incredibly simple camera that is prone to irregularity, she submerges herself in the un-discovered details of Washington, D.C. Through her layered images and intimate settings, Antognoli captures the soul of our capital city.
