"A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you, the less you know." – Diane Arbus


From landscapes, loves, leaves, and litter, to portraits, prom and pain, a wide photographic terrain is covered in this year’s annual University of Central Florida Thesis Exhibition, now in its third year at the Southeast Museum of Photography. The students’ thesis work involves photographic explorations of topics that are personal and public, color and black-and-white, moving and still. This work is a culmination of four years of study in photography.

The Thesis Exhibition showcases portfolios by recent graduates of the Bachelor of Science in Photography program from the Univeristy of Central Florida, which along with Daytona State College, and the Southeast Museum of Photography, collaborate in a joint partnership known as The Southeast Center for Photographic Studies.

The following students are represented in this exhibition:
