The entire exhibition includes 96 total photographs from 81 photographers from colleges in New York, such as Marist, Columbia and RPI.

Two Union students were awarded cash prizes for their respective works. Carlos Leija ’14 received a Juror’s Award for his “Untitled” black-and-white abstract photograph of light reflecting off water with other architectural elements making the abstract composition.
