Second year NESOP students Yorgos Efthymiadis and Arielle Simmons had their work selected by juror Aline Smithson to be part of ‘The Magic of Light‘ exhibition at the PhotoPlace Gallery, VT.
“For this exhibition, I was looking for work that was talking about light, showing its magic, its possibilities, and nuances. I was also looking for sophisticated images and work that was sometimes unexpected, but was shot with intention and focus. In a world where everyone has a camera, it is important to make work that is well executed, create submissions that are consistent, but also make work that is fresh.” – Aline Smithson
Both photos will be included in ‘The Magic of Light’ exhibition catalogue.
Exhibition dates: Mar. 1 – Mar. 27, 2013
Gallery hours: Tuesdays – Fridays, 11-4; Saturdays, 10-1

’11 NESOP Grad Scott Achs was recently the featured artist for ‘Viewfinder’, an ongoing series that appears on the Official Blog of the Impossible Project.
“I usually think of myself as a contrarian, but from time to time, for the sake of inspiration, I find it important to experience a cliche. With this in mind, I put on my mid-October tourist hat, and along with my POLAROID ONE 600 and several packs of PX 680 Color Shade film I took to the road.”

For the November / December 2012 edition of American Photo Magazine, Philip Habib (NESOP ’81) takes a peek into Greek life on campus as part of his series ‘The Future of America‘.
“What interests me most,” Habib says, “is that some of the top leaders in this country— Presidents, CEOs—come from fraternities. This lack of inhibition is an integral moment in those lives.” Seeing it, he adds, “makes it easier to imagine public figures in their underwear.”

2006 NESOP graduate John Steck Jr. returns to Boston with a solo exhibition of new work.
On October 4th from 6-9pm, an opening reception will be held at The Hallway Gallery featuring new seascape photography and experimental photograms created in Ireland, California and everywhere in between.
“The line created where the sky meets the sea, usually represents a space that seems physical, yet is somewhere that can never really be reached. It’s a place that represents the extreme workings of nature, along with emotional contexts, from the metaphorical to the sublime. In this installation of images I contemplate the different ways to look at the vastness of such a space. These images offer different ways to think about the physicality of the horizon line, using various methods of photographic arts.” – John Steck Jr.

David Butler graduated from the NESOP Professional Photography Program in 2008 and has spent the last 3 years based in Phoenix, AZ working as the Brand Photographer for skin care company philosophy.
In this role, David is responsible for all of their advertising images ranging from in-store display ads seen in Macy’s, Nordstrom and Sephora, to Magazine ads seen in Vogue, InStyle, People and Harper’s Bazaar, as well as any digital advertising.
“Attending NESOP was one of those critical life changing decisions for me, I am sure I am not the only graduate that feels this way. I have been working night and day to make my dream come true since the second I enrolled at NESOP, and I have never really stopped working (luckily). There are many truly powerful forms of art, and I believe photography is up there with the most efficient mediums that communicate a message, story, emotion, and even sound and smell sometimes. I am amazed and inspired everyday by the possibilities and potential one person and one camera contain.”
