In A Sense features the work of current MFA photography students from Parsons School of Design in New York City. The 18 artists shown highlight the various ways of seeing, representing, and creating within the medium of photography. Displayed as a whole, their work captures an expansive range of photographic subjects including urban and natural environments, portraiture, abstraction, and documentation. In A Sense evokes many themes including: memory, identity, time and space, presence, absence, and connection. These themes are embedded in the imagery, drawing on specific meanings and relationships by interweaving unique perspectives into a space of contemplation and reflection.

    Parsons School of Design

    A pioneer in art and design education for more than a century, Parsons School of Design is one of the most prestigious and comprehensive colleges of art and design in the world. Critical thinking, collaboration, and reflective practice are at the heart of a Parsons education. Located in the heart of New York City, the school offers undergraduate and graduate programs in the full spectrum of design disciplines. The goal of the MFA program is to prepare graduates to define the creative role of photography within contemporary culture as practicing artists and scholars. The program challenges participants to move beyond current paradigms in order to anticipate and set trends, rather than follow them. A rigorous critique process and regular meetings with faculty, professional artists, and visiting critics help students develop individual points of view and to situate themselves and their work within larger historical, theoretical, and contemporary visual contexts.
