    • International Institute on Political and Economic Studies (IIPES)

    • Untitled

    • Guatemala Term
    • There is no clearer manifestation of wealth than in the graves of the dead. In a visit to the cemetery of Guatemala City, the capital of the country, we saw the distinctions of wealth clearly. These are the public graves, which are rented out for...
    • The Bereaved

    • South Africa Term
    • The window at Baphumelele Orphanage was a symbol that represented the lives of the orphans who looked through them every day. The orphans learn very early in life that they are neglected, unwanted, and ostracized from their families and the rest of...
    • Leslie Jordan & Friends

    • New York Center for Art & Media Studies (NYCAMS)
    • The Easter Parade of New York City isn’t your typical parade. There are no elaborate floats, or sweaty marching bands, or progression of police cars and fire trucks. Rather, the parade is people; voluntary participants and fascinated on-lookers...
    • Monkeys

    • Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands
    • The city of Coca lies on the edge of the Amazon rainforest. Here, animals from the rainforest are of often kept as pets. In this photo, Bethel student Hannah Wohler is experiencing first hand these monkeys desire for local fruit. The monkeys are...
    • Marionettes

    • History of Science in Europe
    • Hand crafted wooden marionettes adorn the streets of Florence over the Ponte Vecchio bridge. Reminding me so much of the story of Pinocchio I later found that Florence was indeed the birth place of Pinocchio’s author Carlo Collodi. The story of...
    • Colors of India

    • Minnesota Studies in International Development (MSID)
    • All of these girls are from rural villages around Jaipur, India. They have come to Budh Shiksha Samiti (a Nongovernment Organization) to get the quality education that they won’t receive if they stay in their villages. I did an internship with this...
    • A Bump in the Road

    • Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands
    • This photograph illustrates circumstances that most of us are all too familiar with. Whether it is a simple family road trip or a bumpy ride up a volcanic mountain in the Galapagos Islands, a bump in the road, almost always presents itself. These...
    • Across Cultures

    • History of Science in Europe
    • In my brief time spent overseas observing and discovering new places with new cultures, customs, and ways of life became part of the experience. However, it struck me that as significant as the origins and lineage of modern science are, so, too,...
    • A Choice to be Made

    • England Term
    • This was taken at Lindisfarne, an island near the eastern border between Scotland and Northern England. Saint Aidan founded the monastery at Lindisfarne. He was an Irish missionary sent from Iona by King Oswald in AD635. It became the base for...
    • The Offering

    • Religious Traditions in Asia: Thailand
    • In Thailand, Buddhism and culture are one in the same. Buddhist symbols, temples, monks, and images are overwhelmingly present in everyday life. Images of the Buddha were originally created as an object of worship and in order to spread the...
    • Wedding in Kenya

    • Daystar University
    • Saitoti and Lipaso are the couple in the middle, just about to be married. They are relatives of my host family in Kenya, the Kirishuas. Out of an assembly of 1,000 Kenyans, my friend Kelly and I were the only two Mwazungu-white people- at the...
    • Eclectic Colored Beach Houses

    • Independent Missions Trip
    • A beautiful display of eclectic color in the setting sun, these iconic beach houses on Fish Hoek Beach along the Cape Town area coast are to be avoided once the sun sets. Although friendly in the daylight, the changing rooms become a refuge for the...
    • I Am Because You Are

    • South Africa Term
    • The spirit and heart of South Africa is so intricately woven into the term 'Ubuntu'- meaning 'I am because you are.' Understanding the interconnectedness of humans and how much our identity is bound up in one another was one of the most incredible...
    • Jambo

    • Kenya Interim Program
    • Description of the photograph: While walking the streets of the Kibera slum, children would repeatedly shout in the sweetest voices, "How are you?" We were a bit puzzled when nearly every child we met continued to inquire about our well being, but...
    • Peace Wall

    • Reconciliation and Role of the Church
    • The history of Northern Ireland is peppered with conflict. While the violence has for the most part subsided, evidence of the conflict remains. In Belfast, many neighborhoods are still segregated, and walls such as this one divide Unionist...
    • Irony

    • Globalization in India
    • In India there are very few trash bins so this is one of them. This photo I feel exposes the irony behind the environmental movement that has taken place so far in India. It is very simple, but it captures the essence of a material society. All...
    • Our Aboriginal Dance

    • Australia Term
    • The indigenous people are a very important part of Australian culture. While in Australia, I had the opportunity to talk with adults and even interact with the kids of an Aboriginal community. These communities have litter-strewn streets,...

    • Guidelines and Limitations

    • History of Science in Europe
    • This photo was taken on the way to the entrance of St. Peter’s Basilica. It is supposed to be the dress code for admittance into the Basilica, but apparently you can’t enter if you are missing a leg or a large chunk of your arm…
