Kirkwood Community College hosted an exhibition of photography by Thomas Langdon from Oct. 2 - 27 at the Iowa Hall Gallery. 

According to the information posted in the Iowa Hall Gallery, “Thomas Langdon is a photographer with four decades of experience as a photojournalist, college faculty in commercial photography and exhibitor in numerous private and public venues. He has been the recipient of grants from the National Endowment of the Arts and the Iowa Arts Council for photography exhibitions in public and social spaces.”  

Greta Songe, the supervisor of this exhibition, said it is “nice for students studying photography or who are attracted by this field, to see pictures by a professional photographer.’’

She also said students can obtain a greater understanding of photography concepts through viewing professional photographs. Vincie Fan, Liberal Arts, stated “It is a very unique experience to showcase how creative our college is.”

She explained, “It is a great learning opportunity for each student because we get to see different perspectives of the world.’’ 

Songe added that the point is to change how students look at their surroundings. She said the idea is that people who make the photographic community are our eyes to the world, they inform us, they relate different histories. And, they can sometimes play the role of storytellers through pictures. 

Songe also expressed that through this educational exhibition students see “different stories that tell what people’s lives have been like at some given moments.’’
