PHOTOGRAPHS BY WEST SUMMERS IV

 

During the fall of 2015, West Summers IV was a student in the Digital Photography course offered through the Studio Concentration at Wofford.  The images in this exhibition were taken by West during a class trip to the Goodall Environmental Studies Center at Glendale Shoals.  They reflect his skill as photographer, his love of nature and his keen observation of light, color, and details that many might overlook.

COLD WAR PROPAGANDA POSTERS 

This collection of posters demonstrates the intense ideological conflict of the Cold War.  The posters from the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe present communist’s critiques of capitalism with imagery so vivid they do not require translation.  The posters also provide clear contrasting views of who was the aggressor in the conflict, the Soviet Union or United States/NATO.  The time period of the posters, from the 1940s to 1980s, highlights how although the intensity of the ideological conflict varied throughout the war, it was always present to some degree.
