About the Exhibition: This online exhibition of student artwork focuses on the broad theme of social realism and its representation in urban and documentary photography. Hidden in Public View surveys how emerging photographers use their cameras as a vehicle to create portraits of our nuanced communities and surroundings, while simultaneously posing the question, “what constitutes a lasting and meaningful image?”

This student exhibition additionally aims to examine photography on a private versus public platform. Through their photography, students explore how expressions of the uncanny are depicted on an intimate level or through imagery intended to incite public response or social change.

In addition to our own Northwest student photographers, the invited institutions and their participants represent the urban environments of Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York, the same locations photographed by Vivian Maier.
