Students' Focus on the Kimbell: Black & White Photographic Sketches
In an interview in 1971, Henri Cartier-Bresson described photography as “…a drawing—[an] immediate sketch done with intuition…” For the three School of Architecture students—Donesh Ferdowsi, Katherine Slusher, and Noah Winkler whose work is represented in this exhibition—photography is a means to explore a building, finding the consequences of its existence related to light, shadow, the passage of time, and its relationship to the people who interact with both its interior and exterior spaces. The resulting photographs reveal a set of lessons that in turn help influence and inform an approach to design.
All photographs in this exhibition were produced in the School of Architecture Darkroom, a fully equipped black & white darkroom managed by the school’s Visual Resources Collection. The Darkroom is located in Sutton Hall and available for use by currently enrolled School of Architecture students. Students with an interest in photography are encouraged to use the facility; prior experience in a darkroom is not required. Darkroom tutorials are scheduled by request and photographic workshops are offered for free every semester.
