The DML gallery is intended to display the work of University of Miami students who have used the services provided in the lab to create a visual story. We try to showcase a variety of different ideas from students across departments. The images on this page are on display in the Digital Media Lab.

Alexis McDonald – Fall 2017 Exhibit

Electronic Media, major

Alexis McDonald is an artist from Atlanta, GA studying electronic media, Africana Studies, and education at the University of Miami. Alexis has always had a passion for telling stories. Whether it is through her writings or photographs Alexis aims to demonstrate the beauty of Black culture in her work. She came up with this photo collection because she wanted to showcase the diversity of Black hair. Alexis first began this collection in 2015 when she took a documentary photography class but when she took introduction to photography through the art department she decided to expand on this collection. Alexis hopes this collection will serve as a constant reminder of the uniqueness of Black culture. These photographs were captured using a Canon T3i.
