Welcome to our new students! Profile of Shannon Oertle.

Shannon Oertle is the latest new MFAVN student under the spotlight. Shannon’s work struck us as whimsical, with a wonderful sense of childhood. Her application’s imagery and storytelling give us a sense of seeing the world through a child’s eyes. But Shannon also tells some horrifying stories, including Strange Marriage…

Photography project using 4×5 film camera, telling a visual narrative to explore the theme of domestic abuse.

Shannon chose to write about Night & Day for her thesis application. Here’s a peek at why we selected her!

We look forward to working with you, Shannon!
