The Empire State College students taking part, Rich Cavagnolo, JoAnn Kellner, Jessica Matthews, Sandra Nordland and Rusty Riddell, are studying photography with cultural studies Professor Tom Akstens at the college’s Adirondack Unit.

“All photographs for exhibition were chosen by Dr. Akstens and me based on their compositional qualities, along with their varied photographic genres, which include editorial, creative and personal,” said Nordland, who also is curating the exhibit.
