NEW YORK, July 27, 2017 — The Sheila C. Johnson Design Center (SJDC) at Parsons School of Design presents POST-TRUTH, an exhibition of thesis work by students in Parsons' MFA Photography program.

Under the direction of Parsons faculty member James Ramer, the studio-based MFA Photography program brings visionary students together with faculty members who are some of the art world's most influential photographers.

"Students are encouraged to develop their individual vision in a collaborative, interdisciplinary environment and to explore related technologies, focusing on the relationship between concept and production," Ramer says.

The exhibition features thesis work by: Michael DiFeo, Arash Fewzee, Annaleena Keso, Charles Park, Christian Padron, Sebastian Perinotti, Rowena Rubio, Abhishek Sharma, Sarah Wang, Jinming Zhong, and Mengting Zhou.
