The Dark Room and International Photography Hall of Fame and Museum to debut “New on the Scene”

New On The Scene, The Dark Room’s first photography exhibit celebrates its official opening on Thursday, March 27th. The reception will last from 6-8:00 pm.

New On The Scene showcases eight recent graduates of Webster University who are now photographers working in the St. Louis area. Seven are working in the field as professional photographers; one has gone on to graduate school.

They are working as assistants or doing freelance work. Some are specializing in editorial photography, portraiture, food or photojournalism. These eight are fresh to the scene and doing a bit of everything…that is how you start out to make a life in photography.

Each one loves this medium. They experiment. The photographs on display here come out of the personal expressive projects which each continues to explore. Images made with toy cameras, multiple exposures, abstractions on walls and more.
