Senior Thesis Exhibition
Reception & Show

Drexel University Photography

is proud to announce the 2011 Senior Photography Exhibition.  The show will open June 3rd and be on display through June 9th, 2011, at the Skybox 2424 Studios, 2424 East York Street, Philadelphia, PA.


The opening reception will be held June 3, 2011, 6 - 9 pm, and the public is invited to attend.  The artists will be available during the reception to talk about their work.


Each student has worked for nine months on their individual thesis project, developing and altering their work when appropriate.  The culmination of this effort is the creation of a very diverse, fascinating body of work.  The prints include a wide range of differences, such as size, color, and subject matter.


The Senior Photography Show has taken place for the past decade, enjoying a large amount of success during this time.  In 1999, the Princeton University Art Museum attained the work of four students for their permanent collection.  In addition, student work has continually won various awards for Communication Arts Magazine, Graphic Design Annual and the PDN Annual Awards.

Emily Frances Olson

Emily Olson, junior, is currently exhibiting a body of work at the James E. Marks Intercultural Center Gallery.  Currently on display are black and white photographs of women highlighting the diversity of Philadelphia and of Drexel University's campus.  The images were paired with personal narratives written by the subject.


"My hope is that these portraits and the subject's own narratives communicate a sense of love, history and sometimes even suffering that will provoke our own inquiry into our individual stories and culture," said Olson.  The exhibition hopes to give the viewer a global perspective of themselves as human beings and to also capture how they have been shaped by their place, time and culture in the world.
