The Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences (AHSS) Division of BPCC and the Learning Commons Library are delighted to announce their new exhibition of student photographs for the spring semester.

    Life Through My Lens is a captivating exhibition by student artist Rahel Aksam. Aksam is a respiratory therapy major at BPCC and a self-proclaimed street photographer, which means she takes “photos of people and urban cities.”

    “My inspiration comes from crowded cities and people’s emotions,” says Aksam. “I don’t like trying to take perfect photos, because nothing is perfect in street photography. The freedom to photograph anything helps me feel more inspired and be able to capture beautiful moments.

    Lily Thompson, assistant professor and part-time gallery coordinator at the BPCC, believes that while Aksam is primarily self-taught, her photographs have impressive artistic compositions in the way they capture the vibrancy of city life.

    “His close-up photos, such as I SEE YOU, draw the viewer in and allow them to witness the human connection between strangers. Aksam clearly enjoys engaging with his subjects through the lens of his camera, which makes the scenes even more relevant.

    Aksam’s photographs are on display until May 8 at BPCC’s Learning Commons Library, located on BPCC’s Bossier Campus inside the John R. McConathy Administration Building (first floor). A reception will be held on Wednesday, February 22, 2023 from 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. in front of the Learning Commons Library. The exhibition can be viewed during opening hours as follows:

    • Monday to Thursday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

    • Fridays from 7:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
