The Passage Gallery presents Portraits through Documentary, a series of documentary films from Purchase College. Students of Professor Chuck Workman in the School of Film and Media Studies explore the documentary form through varied subjects, contexts and production techniques. Applying their knowledge of historic nonfiction practice and filmmaking methodology, artists in this exhibition have independently and collaboratively researched, designed, recorded, directed, edited and produced these works.
Artists in the exhibition include Jaimé Bernat, Jonathan Cheng, Olivia J. Hampson, Taylor Page, Jared Ray, Diorlenny Rodriguez, Drew Santini, Alan Wertz and Kameron Wood. The show offers a highly personalized view of humanity as seen and decided by these filmmakers.
