Two 2014 Alums, (Jasmine Thompson, Hunter Brumfield) and two current VCU Photo and Film students (Alexander Kreher, Lucy Dacus) were invited to document a fashion exhibit atop the new One World Trade Center a year and half before it is officially open to the public.
J Model Management hosted the first ever fashion phenomenon on 25 June 2014 at sunset. The highly anticipated J Summer Fashion Show is part of Jessica Minh Anh’s history making catwalks at the most iconic venues in the world including London Tower Bridge, Grand Canyon Skywalk, PETRONAS Twin Towers’ Skybridge, Seine River in Paris, Gardens by the Bay’s Skyway in Singapore, and Costa Atlantica in Dubai.

Three alums, (Kate Fowler, Mark Strandquist, and Cynthia Henebry), from our BFA and MFA programs presented at Look3′s LookBetween program: 75 emerging photographers were nominated by a prestigious group of international editors and curators and were invited to spend the weekend at Deep Rock Farm (30 minutes outside of Charlottesville in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains). Each participant presented their work in slideshows projected on an enormous outdoors screen under the night sky. During the day the participants were involved in workshops, portfolio reviews, discussions, collaborative projects, hanging out around the bonfire and swimming in the pond.
Assistant professor Jon-Phillip Sheridan curated an exhibit at Second Street Gallery which also features faculty Justin James Reed. The opening reception was Friday March 7th.

VCU Photography and Film’s visiting faculty member Caroline Martel screens her documentary on the history of this relatively unkown but incredibly influential electronic musical instrument of the 1920s and beyond. Traveling between the Old and New Worlds, Martel interviews and investigates martenot connoiseurs—musicians, composers, instrument makers—who are unique in their devotion and love for this sensitive, electronic “missing link” in musical instrument history.
