We had the opportunity to photograph the graduating students of the York / Sheridan Joint Program in Design (YSDN) for the 10th annual Graduate Exhibition, which is entirely financed, designed, and produced by the graduating class. 2010 marked the departure from the traditional ‘booth’ approach where graduates were responsible for their own space (a booth) during the show. The show became category based (3D, Systems, Book, Editorial, Screen) with different students’ work intermingled throughout the show. This new approach was meant to focus more on the work created by the graduating class as a whole, rather than on any one particular student’s work. This more unified approach was present from the initial conceptual ideas of the show right down to the physical display of the work. We wanted the photographs to represent the change as well.
