Adam Magyar 'Kontinuum' explores the cities that people inhabit through the use of scanning cameras, and constructed images. Several works include train carriages suspended in the dark similar to a shuttle in space, with the commuters staring blankly, speaking, or standing akwardly.

Anne Marcie D'Arcy 'American Sikh' is a series of portraits of Sikhs. The subjects seem comfortable, confident, and familiar. The lighting and composition are meticulous and the images engaging and delightful.

Lauren Marsolier 'Transition' is an exhibit of landscapes with constructed environments with no people within frame. The images are composed to create a sense of alienation and reflection. The sandy tones and hard, contrast with the cool cement of the buildings, give a sense that the area has not been deserted for long, and that these places are somehow at the end of the road.
