Past Photo Contest Winners

Yu Zhou Lee, Duke University A photo of the Charles River in Boston flipped upside down, with the reflection seeming like the night sky and reality of day turning into the ‘reflection’. Taken during a trip to Boston during Thanksgiving, it reminds me of how my home, Singapore, is 9000 miles away, with a time difference of 12 hours from school – days in Durham are nights at back at home. The photo represents shifting realities, where the dream of pursuing an education in the U.S. is no longer an imagination, but a physical reality and home is now a reflection of the past.

Shanea Strachan, Bahamas, New Mexico Highlands University My photograph represents the freedom of being beautiful as my natural self. We were given the opportunity to do self-portraits for Photography II Finals. Alone with myself in the studio I bared it all showing that you can be beautiful in your own skin. Beauty here in America comes in all shapes and sizes and seeing the confidence of the people around me inspired me to find the confidence in myself to take this self-portrait that I can be beautiful in my own skin, despite my size, hair type and not wearing makeup. This has impacted me greatly and I hope to impact others

The Balinese attend this ceremony once a month in which they immerse themselves under 10 out of the 12 fountains to thank ancestors, remove karma passed from them, purify their future ,to increase and cleanse their aura and to remove diseases. This represents the cultural side of the Balinese and how they live in their everyday lives.
