    • Dairy Farm

    • St. Louis University

    • Los Angeles Film Studies Center (LAFSC)

    • Misty Mountains

    • American Institute For Foreign Study (AIFS)
    • I had the opportunity over the mid-semester break to travel to New Zealand. New Zealand was the location for the Lord of the Rings movies, and after visiting, it is easy to understand why. The scenery was absolutely breathtaking and magnificent;...
    • 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...
    • The Offering

    • Amazonian Mushrooms

    • Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands
    • One thing I learned during our hikes through the Amazon rainforest is that everything in the rainforest fights to optimize its chances for survival. These delicate mushrooms may have been easily overlooked, but they exemplify this principle well. ...
    • Window of Despair

    • Upper Midwest Association for Intercultural Education (UMAIE)
    • The Day we visited Majdanek was very dreary and rainy. It was the type of weather that chilled you to the bone. This picture was taken in the corridor right outside the gas chambers where Zycolne B was used to kill an estimated 3,000 people. The...
    • Cottage Garden

    • England Term
    • The Lakes District is widely accepted as the most beautiful spot in England. It has dazzling hills covered in moss and streams, low stonewalls encircling sheep pastures, and slate cottages with boot flower pots suspended from their walls. This...
    • An Old Friend

    • AustraLearn
    • The photo was taken on a cold misty afternoon. The river was very calm and still. The surroundings around me felt almost mystical. I was hiking along the Huon Trail in Tasmania when I came upon a small wooden boat school. It felt like I had...
    • God's Love for All Nations

    • Guatemala Term
    • The picture was taken on our last excursion. This was taken in a small community on the shores of Lake Atitlan. I thought it was a beautiful depiction of God's love being found in the most random, small community in this beautiful third world...
    • Natives of Galway

    • Arcadia, National University of Ireland
    • The swans in this photo live on the River Corrib, which flows through the middle of Galway, Ireland. It is impossible to avoid the river (or the swans) if you spend any meaningful time in the city. I captured this photo on a visit to the bay one...

    • New York Center for Art & Media Studies (NYCAMS)
    • This is a photograph selected from a project I worked on through the entirety of the NYCAMS semester, studying the nuances of typical tourist behavior. This photo was taken while circling the promenade under the Statue of Liberty pretending to be a...

    • In the Midst

    • Experiencing Culture and Education in Hong Kong and Manila
    • This photo was taken after a two-hour trip up to the “Big Buddah” on Lantau Island. It is the largest bronze sitting Buddah in the world, only it was so foggy that day, that we could only see the outline of his raised hand! The statues around...
    • Ostrich Farm at Sunset

    • South Africa Term
    • This photo was taken at Highgate Ostrich Show Farm, otherwise known as The Ostrich Capital of the World. The ostrich farmers of Oudtshoorn found instant riches in the late 1800s through the early 1900s with the boom in demand for precious ostrich...
