For our latest installment of Out of the Box, we gave students in School of Visual Arts’ photography program some of spring’s most interesting fashion and accessories and asked them to explore them for a day through their own lens. What came back was an adventurous selection of images, each communicating different ideas and inspirations. Hailun Ma referenced Renaissance art and Chinese royal portraits using Dolce & Gabbana. Mahgameh Parvaneh drew a connection between Iranian women’s rights and identity through a pair of LaCrasia gloves, and Katelyn Kopenhaver updated iconic fashion photography with a Brooks Brothers necklace.
