The little endeavor named Group Study began as a blog for sharing photography, but grew to new depths when we started meeting as a crit group. For one year, we gathered for bi-monthly conversation at a tiny apartment in Oakland, California. New shapes took form there and a community blossomed. Eventually, the resident of said apartment prepared to move, and together we devised a going away party.

Thank You For Coming was a celebration and send off to the living room which we'd used to converse, collaborate, and grow as photographers. The one-night, pop-up exhibition happened on Saturday, February 27th, 2016. 

The show was collectively photographed, curated, and installed by Group Study. Contributing artists included:

Adrienne Kirk

Beatriz Escobar

Evan H. Davis
Fionnuala Bradley
