Nine artists – Andrew Baldwin, Richard Burgess, Laura Fry, Stephanie Gaumad, David Koller, Jillian Pate, Jen Schneider, E.K. Wimmer, and Maria Rose Wimmer - submitted works of all media (2-D, sculpture, and installation) that utilized recycled materials, images and themes.
6-28: Undeveloped: Images by Tibetan Youth –curated by Carrie Roy in collaboration with Lindsey Greising
About the Exhibit
“Undeveloped: Images by Tibetan Youth,” included 20 images all taken on disposable cameras by a group of 12 boys, ages 8 to 12, who live in a Tibetan monastery. Lindsey Greising, a senior international studies and political science major, spent the winter interterm in Tibet through Project Dharamsala, one of DU’s international service-learning programs. Greising wanted to see Tibet through the eyes of children, so prior to her departure, she called local camera stores asking for donations. Englewood Camera supplied eight disposable cameras and donated the developing, printing and framing for the exhibit. In this project, the disposable cameras were provided to boys at a local monastery, who were then given a brief lesson on photography basics and set free to take photos of their daily lives. “Some of the boys are as young as 8 and have left their families to pursue a life in the Buddhist tradition. It can only be imagined how difficult it is to be away from family, but it seems as the boys provide a decent support system for each other. Through the kids’ enthusiasm and excitement over this project, I realized the incredible power to triumph over hardship and find faith in a brighter future.” – Lindsay Greising
