The Alumni Focus exhibition series is a biennial event at the Southeast Museum of Photography in which the Museum presents new work by distinguished alumni of the Southeast Center for Photographic Studies – a consortium with Daytona State College and the University of Central Florida. Since the program’s inception 50 years ago, graduates have taken their place among the nation’s leading photographers.

Co-curated by Dan Biferie, Photography Program Chair; Gary Monroe, Photography Professor; and Juliana Romnes, the Museum’s Interim Director, this exhibition is a celebration of the accomplishments of 17 photographers that studied at the Southeast Center for Photographic Studies between 1979 and 2009 and focuses on alumni that have made Central Florida their home— pursuing, excelling and succeeding in a myriad of commercial photography specializations, from architectural, portrait and wedding photography to fashion, travel and lifestyle.
