Beyond the Front Porch 2011
The collection, Beyond the Front Porch, features the work of this year’s sixteen Documentary Studies Certificate recipients. These students seek to address social issues, comment on education reform, capture the Durham revival, and mold portraits through their work. Through these documentaries, the graduating class makes use of the skills they have learned through their time as Duke undergraduates. This exhibition is an opportunity for them to celebrate their community to delve deeply into their families, and to bring individuals together.
