Chiaroscuro: Diver & Aguilar after Caravaggio

This afternoon I stumbled upon these photographic remakes of some classic Caravaggio paintings, by Diver & Aguilar. I've always been a big fan of the simple yet dramatic "Rembrandt"-style lighting, and these photographs have it in spades.

New Stuff

As I mentioned in the previous post, and as pretty much all of you in San Diego who have any connection with the City College photo department know, this summer we moved into a ridiculously amazing new facility, which very soon will be the envy of photographic educators the world over. On September 24th at 6pm, we will be hosting an opening reception for the first exhibit in our new gallery, Luxe. This exhibit will feature the work of the faculty and staff of the City photography department; there are some great pieces (some of which will be for sale), so come take a look!

Here are some photos from moving day:

Jeremy & Claire Weiss: Polaroid Portfolio

Well, I know it's been a while since I've posted here, but this summer was a busy one working on getting the brand new City College photography building up and running. It's now mostly done, classes are in full-swing, and there's a lot of cool stuff on the horizon for the photography department (more on that later). In the meantime, I thought I'd share some raw portraiture work by Jeremy and Claire Weiss.
