We are pleased to announce the Flash Forward Festival’s Annual College Student Exhibition, Undergraduate Photography Now (Part 2). This is a showcase of New England’s most talented student photographers that will be held in conjunction with the Festival’s 6 exhibitions, 3 outdoor installations and a fantastic line-up of professional, artistic and community programming from May 1–4 in Boston at the Fairmont Battery Wharf.

This is an exhibition of the best college Juniors and Seniors enrolled in a college photography program in any of the New England States: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, or Vermont, during the 2013–2014 academic year. All formats and categories of photography were excepted to highlight the vast talents of these future photography professionals and artists.

The work was juried & curated by Jonathan Gitelson and Greer Muldowney.
