Photography and Imaging

The College launched the Student/Space video series in fall 2013 to capture the essence of what it means to be an ArtCenter student by illuminating the art of making, from conception to completion.  The idea was to capture the agony and ecstasy of creativity itself. So each term, three students from different disciplines were selected to collaborate on a series of three videos capturing the process of completing an ambitious class project, from beginning to end.

Photography student Roman Alexander Vargas explores the creative touchstones (Nan Goldin, primarily) and the emotional breakthroughs informing and influencing his deeply personal photo essay chronicling his drag queen initiation.
