This week I mourn the loss of the beautiful weather of last week. St. Louis is finally accepting the fact that it’s Fall now, as it’s been gloomy and rainy all week. But that just means it’s time for flannels, sweatpants, and all things pumpkin!
Juniors and Seniors in the Communication Design program have their own desks in studio to work at during and out of class. Everyone decorates their space in unique ways, so I thought it’d be fun to do a photo series of people’s desks!
One of the things I like about living in St. Louis is how many places you can travel from here!
On Wednesday, Untitled (Dividing Time), a flag created by artist Robert Longo, was raised on the plaza in Sam Fox. It is a part of a national art project entitled Pledges of Allegiance organized by Creative Time. The project is meant to spark conversation about how art can raise awareness of current problems in America.
I spent this past semester studying in Florence, Italy with the Sam Fox School Communication Design program, which was an amazing experience to say the least! Due to bad wifi, I couldn’t continue my Photo of the Week posts, but to make it up here’s a highlight reel from the past 4 months! […]
As someone from evergreen California, I love watching the leaves here change colors throughout fall semester. Campus is cold but beautiful this time of year!
Forest Park is especially beautiful in the fall! This was taken outside of the St. Louis Art Museum on a beautiful autumn afternoon.
Last Thursday, the amazing architect and artist Maya Lin, came to speak in Graham Chapel. She’s most known for her design of the Vietnam Memorial, which she completed at age 21. Her lecture focused a lot on today’s environmental issues and how we can help. Check out her website whatismissing.net to learn more about how our environment has changed!
Last week I attended a “Love Rally” outside of the DUC where over a thousand people from Wash U and the communities beyond gathered to support one another in the wake of the election. People from local government, neighboring schools, and our own campus told stories, recited poetry, and sang songs of tolerance and inclusion.
Last night, around 150 students gathered together in Brookings quad for a Post-Election Open Discussion. The event was organized by two students and a professor who wanted to create a forum for all students to express their thoughts about the recent election in a safe, open-minded environment. It was really great to see how the community here fosters support and free speech, and I’m really happy I could attend.
I knew it was going to be a good day when I stepped out my door to the sight of seven dogs in Halloween costumes. The Howl-o-ween Pet Parade on the Loop happened last Sunday and it was the cutest event I have ever photographed.
This week’s photo is from the Lofts, the WashU-owned apartment complex on the Loop where I live. The sunlight was so beautiful that day, I just had to get a shot! You can also see Peacock Diner, the 24 hour restaurant in the bottom of one of the four buildings.
Unsurprisingly, the photos this week come from the Presidential Debate held on our very own campus. In the hours before the event, I photographed many of the activities including the news stations and student-run booths.
In anticipation for the Presidential debate being held on campus this Sunday, this week Brookings is sporting the American flag every night.
Hello world! My name is Katie and I’m excited to be starting a new photo series on this blog! If you couldn’t tell already, I’m a photographer and have been shooting for admissions for the past year. This year, I’m going to start putting those photos to use in a “Photo of the Week” series that I think will be very fun.
