Roundup: Emerging Photographers

by Eugen. Average Reading Time: about a minute.

Inevitably, art school graduation shows are a bit hit and miss. Thus, it was refreshing to see so much great work at this year’s Maximum Exposure – Ryerson’s School of Image Arts’ annual grad show. Nearly all the work was technically superb and there were so many interesting and unique projects that everyone I spoke with said the same thing – wow, what a strong year! Here is, in no particular order, our pick of ten emerging photographers from Ryerson (some are still in school) to watch over the next few years.
