The 2022 UMD Emerging Photographers Virtual Gallery

The 2022 Emerging Photographers present a diverse body of work, from product placement to nature photography to social commentary, exploring their circumstances and delivering their perspectives. Some embrace spontaneity, experimenting with the serendipity of film, while others execute prepared photoshoots with controlled lighting and framing, or even oscillate between the two approaches. Passion, enthusiasm, and self-discovery emerge through the work of these young artists.

Congratulations to this year’s photographers: Mahjur Ahmed, Jude Bass, Max Dotseth, Keshon Hughes, Linnea Jungwirth, Masue Kamara, Chloe Limberg, Morgan Savard, Miranda Van Lith, and Josiah Wood.
