Cal Poly University is hosting its first Art Galley of the new school year, "Photography now" , which exhibits modern photography with a vintage twist and highlights the work of nine San Jose State photographers, most of whom attended galleries opening.

The artwork is a mix of old photography that dates back to the infancy days of before the civil war to more modern images that we're used to today.

Jeff van Kleek, the gallery coordinator for the University Art Gallery describes the show:
