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.

Since the program’s inception 50 years ago, Daytona State College Photography Program graduates have taken their place among the nation’s leading photographers. The program has since grown into one of 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:
