    • 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...
    • 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...

    • Los Angeles Film Studies Center (LAFSC)

    • 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…
    • 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;...
    • A Choice to be Made

    • Collision

    • South Africa Term
    • This photo was taken on the ferryboat to Robben Island in Cape Town. It captures a collision of cultures and of generations; everyone in South Africa was impacted by Apartheid on some level and to see the different people that go to Robben Island...
    • 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...
    • Waking the Nation

    • Greece & Turkey Study Tour

    • 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...
    • Solitude

    •  
    • This photo was taken on the senior nursing trip to the United Arab Emirates in the Middle East. One of our many adventures involved taking a morning trip to a wadi, or dry riverbed. We crossed the boarder into Oman and descended down the rocks...
    • 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...
    • Unused Quarter

    • 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...

    • White Steed

    • American Institute for Foreign Study (AIFS)
    • This picture was taken in Cordoba, Spain, while we were waiting in line to enter the Alcazar de los Reyes Cristianos. I took a picture of this scene because it seemed to breathe "Spain." What you cannot see in the picture is the owner of the horse...
