“The Art that has endured through time possesses content which moves well beyond the obvious. What appeals to me most about these young photographers is, in the end, the subjects of their photographs in reality move beyond the subjects.” - George S. Bolge, Exhibition Juror and CEO, The Museum of Florida Art

Departures is a juried exhibition that highlights photography by recent graduates of the Daytona State College photography program. This is the eighth year that the Southeast Museum of Photography has had the honor of showcasing the work of these recent graduates and it will continue to be a yearly summer event at the museum.

For more than 40 years, Daytona State College graduates have taken their place among the nation’s leading photographers. The programs have grown into the largest, most comprehensive commercial photography programs in the southeastern US. The challenges of a rapidly changing aesthetic and commercial environment have been met by dynamic programs that stress the fundamental aspects of photography, the highest level of technical proficiency and professional judgment; and give an understanding of the techniques, materials and equipment used in the profession today.

The following students are represented in this exhibition: dreams
