PhotoSynthesis XVII is a collaboration between Burlington High School and Winchester High School facilitated by the Griffin Museum of Photography.
Join us on Thursday June 8th from 6 to 8pm for an Artist Reception to celebrate these talented student works and meet their instructors and supporters.
Now in its eighteenth year, this 5-month program connects approximately 20 students with each other and professional photographers, artists and curators. Using photography as a visual language, student’s increase their vocabulary to communicate about themselves and the world around them. Interacting with fellow students from different programs, backgrounds and schools the students create a capsule of who they are in this moment, learning from each other to create a united exhibition showcasing all they have learned during the program.
The participating student artists from Winchester High School:
Neave Bunting | Claire English | Avery Robinson
The participating student artists from Burlington High School:
Madison Bairos | Lindsay Bullock | Kirsten Dew | Georgia Doherty | Samantha Goneau | Lindsey Lavoie | Alyssa LoCicero | Alex McGillivray | Lily Passaretta | Ava Restivo | Caroline Sciarratta
The students are given the task of creating a body of work that communicates a sense of self and place. They were encouraged to explore the importance of props, the environment, facial expression, metaphor, and body language in portrait photography.
The Griffin Museum is grateful to all of our tremendous sponsors. Photosynthesis is generously supported by grants from The John and Mary Murphy Foundation, The ENKA Society, and The Winchester Cultural District.
