In Between Borders - "Every day we see things.  That we pay no attention to.   A curtain.  A wall.  A vase.  They pass through our acknowledging eyes to our subconscious and are recorded as uneventful, and our attention moves on.  But if you stop your eyes for a moment, adjust your focus, you may see the color, the light, the symmetry that makes the everyday beautiful."

The Exhibition Lab is a study of photography outside of a traditional academic setting. The initiative was co-founded by Michael Foley in 2010 as a study center for fine art photography dedicated to learning by critique. Students of the ExLab meet over the course of five months, holding critique sessions with one another and one-on-one sessions with Michael Foley.
