For these eight students, the photograph is hammer, scalpel, confessional, playground. Their varied approaches to such time-honored subjects as childhood, social space, personal identity, and cultural history yield startling insights into the way we live today. They blend their images with video and installation, producing works both quietly intimate and deceptively offhand. It is not until well after our encounter with them that we realize the true depth of their concerns, and the seriousness with which they pursue them.
