Thesis Talk

As the Art Department’s BFA/MFA Thesis Shows get ready to open in The Dorsky, we take an inside look at different strokes from different folks.

Opening Reception: Friday, April 25


Kelly Novak – Relations

Fourth-year BFA photography

Medium: 35 mm film printed

chemically/shot and printed digitally


I observe and document the everyday interaction of families. I draw a comparison of family dynamics among the families photographed, depicting those dynamics primarily through the use of space within a household and the direction and intent of gaze. I would like viewers to allow this sampling of family dynamics to inspire reflection on their own definition of family.
