The photography exhibition "Through the Lens of Unity" aims to showcase the vibrant tapestry of diversity, equality, and inclusiveness that thrives within the CUNY community. By capturing the essence of various cultures, backgrounds, and perspectives, this exhibition seeks to promote a sense of unity and appreciation for the richness that diversity brings. Through the power of imagery, we aim to highlight the strength and beauty that emerges when individuals from different walks of life come together in an inclusive environment.
Photographs in this exhibition will explore the multifaceted aspects of diversity, including but not limited to race, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, and abilities. Each image will tell a unique story, shedding light on the experiences, struggles, triumphs, and shared humanity of individuals within our university community.
By showcasing the diverse range of talents, achievements, and contributions of our students, faculty, and staff, "Through the Lens of Unity" aims to inspire dialogue, foster understanding, and promote a culture of acceptance and respect. Through this exhibition, we hope to encourage viewers to embrace diversity as a major strength of our university, recognizing that it is through the celebration of our differences that we truly thrive as a community.
Join us on this visual journey as we explore the power of photography to capture the essence of diversity, equality, and inclusiveness. Let us celebrate the unique stories and experiences that make our university a vibrant and inclusive place for all.
