The Faces of LaGuardia photography project captures the global diversity
of LaGuardia Community College's student body exclusively through
portraits of LaGuardia students created by LaGuardia students.
A multi-faceted collaboration of the college's Marketing and
Communications personnel, faculty members and students, it was
structured as a contest open to the college's photography students.
Mimicking a real world photo assignment, it challenged the students to
do their best with one of the most difficult types of photographic
representation, that of portraiture. Students had to find and engage
their own subjects, obtain releases, schedule and conduct shooting
sessions, edit their images, and submit on deadline.
