PLATTEVILLE, Wis. — The University of Wisconsin-Platteville’s Photography III class is exhibiting their photography until Dec. 20 in the Nohr Gallery in Ullsvik Hall.
Students were asked to choose their own photographic topic to explore throughout the semester. Each participant created 10 original photographs that reflect their personal artist statements. All of the photographs are required to be cohesive within the collection and adhere to their artist statement.
The participants include Alyssa Abing, Landon Glodowski, Emma Kippley, Jessica Kloster, Timothy Mehlhorn, Luke Pritchard, Brittany Reuber, Megan Schmidt, and Nicole Schwoob. Each photographer has chosen a different theme and set of subject matter to represent at the show.
Abing, a senior from Belmont, Wis., chose to exhibit the planning and effort that goes into making food at a restaurant. “By looking at the photography I want the viewers to crave a taste of the food,” said Abing. “I want the images to make them feel as if they are standing in the kitchen.”
Glodowski, a senior from Amherst, Wis., is exhibiting extreme close-ups of the human body. “The formalistic view, created by changing these photographs into vector images, transforms part of the body,” said Glodowski.
Kippley, a senior from Prairie du Sac, Wis., was inspired by growing up in a rural farming community. “My collection is called Skinned and shows foods typically grown in the Midwest in a new light,” said Kippley.
Kloster, a senior from Winnebago, Ill., is exhibiting her work about not letting go of youth. “We all still have that youthful spirit inside of us,” said Kloster. She said she feels as though there is a disconnect between generations and that it is important to remember that everyone was a child once.
Mehlhorn, a senior from Dubuque, Iowa, is exhibiting work that shows the interaction between patterns and the human face. “Geometric patterns give a sculptural sense to the face while a pattern like lace can create a sense of intimacy between the model and the viewer,” said Mehlhorn.
Pritchard, a senior from Sycamore, Ill., is exhibiting a collection of sports photography from UW-Platteville’s athletic program. “I was inspired to shoot sports photography because of my previous involvement in athletics and the importance of sports in my own family,” said Pritchard.
Reuber, a senior from Pearl City, Ill., chose to exhibit images created to resemble grocery aisle food signs. “I wanted to incorporate my graphic design skills with my knowledge of photography,” said Reuber.
Schmidt, a senior form Mount Morris, Ill., is exhibiting a show about women doing unordinary things. Each photograph represents a woman breaking out of a preconceived idea about how women should act and behave in our society.
Schwoob, a senior from Warren, Ill., is exhibiting how high detail portrait photography can be used to show beauty found in personal imperfections.
