‘Abundance’: KIU-PCA&D photography exchange

. . .

Tuesday, December 11th, 2018

New images from 90 photography students from here and South Korea have been added to the KIUPCAD Photography Exchange Blog,  with the theme “Abundance.”

See their answers at http://kiu-pcad.tumblr.com.

Regularly, for the past seven years,  students at Kyungil University (KIU) in Daegu, South Korea, and Pennsylvania College of Art & Design are asked an open-ended question that students at both institutions will then answer through photographs.

The photographs on this blog are the result of a cultural exchange between digital imaging students studying at Kyungil University in South Korea and the Pennsylvania College of Art and Design in the United States.  Inititiated by Professor Paul Choe, Kyungil University (KIU), and Professor Eric Weeks, PCA&D, the goal is for the photography students from the two cultures to learn about each other through photography, while also gaining an understanding of the communicative power of the medium.

The exchange blog benefits PCA&D students because they learn how images can communicate their opinions and experiences to other cultures through social media on the internet. Eric Weeks believes that the students are often surprised by how much the two cultures have in common. http://kiu-pcad.tumblr.com.
