Palomar College photography faculty member Donna Cosentino said, “Palomar has a well-known and highly respected photography department that has managed a vigorous and varied program for more than 60 years.”

Enlightened Lens is a juried exhibition of more than sixty photographic works all made by students of the Palomar College photography program.  Three faculty members judged over one hundred and fifty images entered by students from beginning to advanced status to create this annual show. The works in this exhibition represent a variety of processes including digital and film-based, color and black and white, and traditional and alternative techniques.  “The widely differing content of these images exemplify the breadth of our program,” Cosentino said.  Much of the work on view will be for sale.

The student population in the Palomar Photography Department is comprised of a diverse group in age, interest and background, and they come from all areas of North San Diego County and beyond. Their goals range from exploring career options to life enrichment. In addition to acquiring strong technical skills, students are encouraged to pursue their own expressive personal vision as evidenced by the work displayed in this exhibition.

The exhibit will travel to the Hearth Gallery at the San Marcos Civic Center and show from mid-January through to the end of February
