    Student photos shown in Rombach Gallery

    The UA School of Art is currently showcasing the work of UA students enrolled in summer school photography courses in the “”Twice as Hot: Second Annual Hot Photography Show”” at the Lionel Rombach Gallery.

    The photographs do not follow a theme, thereby allowing for a collection of great diversity, gallery director Blake Shell said.

    “”It’s a nice way to get students in the summer involved in something,”” she said.

    Students were able to submit any piece they desired.

    Alejandro Gonzalez, an art education and studio art senior enrolled in Shell’s untrue narrative photography course, submitted two photographs from a 2006 visit to San Francisco.

    Gonzalez’s color images are from a car ride through the city, showing his ability to capture moments in motion.

    Each photograph in the exhibit represents a different vision from each student.

    “”It’s good to see the spectrum (of diversity),”” Gonzalez said.

    Gonzalez pointed out that the exhibit showcases traditional works, like senior Ryan McIntosh’s photographs titled “”Abstraction, The Boneyard.”” There are also junior Stephanie Ulm’s photographs, which were taken underwater.

    Elizabeth Brice-Heames’ black-and-white murals display a purpose for something much larger, Gonzalez said.

    Each of her photographs focuses closely on an image – one on a street and the other on a hand.

    Gonzalez said the viewer is forced to notice the isolation or absence of other objects.

    “”The exhibit shows the variety of ways people express themselves,”” Gonzalez said.

    Each series of photographs appeals to a different individual, Shell said.

    “”(Attendees) get to see a sample of what students are producing,”” Shell said.

    The exhibit will run until July 2 at the gallery, 830 E. Speedway Blvd. It is free to the public.
