The photographers included within this first edition of CONTINUUM are Fall 2008 members of the Advanced & Graduate level photography course in the Department of Art and Art History at California State University, Chico. For this class, each artist is working to create a professional quality portfolio of photographic works. The themes of which are selected by the individual. Part of their effort was to provide a duo of images that now grace the pages of this book. The design of this volume has also been a collaborative process. As instructor, my role has been that of an orchestrator, editing and blending the visual notes that have become this unique composition.
