Go behind the camera with Princeton University students through this video that highlights some of the winners of the sixth annual International Eye Photo Contest and the stories of their intriguing images.
The contest celebrates the creative eye of undergraduates who capture the beauty and day-to-day realities of life abroad. The winning entries span five continents that students visited for research, study abroad, internships or service through the Bridge Year Program. In addition to discussing their contest entries in the video, the student photographers describe how their travels have shaped their college experience and future plans.
The contest is sponsored by the Office of International Programs (OIP) in collaboration with the Innovations for Successful Societies program, the Program in Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies, and the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures.
Emmet Gowin, a professor of visual arts in the Lewis Center for the Arts, emeritus, judged this year's contest. A complete list of winners and a slide show of all the winning photos is available at OIP's website.
An exhibit of the winning photos is traveling to several venues on campus this academic year:
- Studio 34 in Butler College through April 8,
- the Rockefeller College Common Room from April 9 to May 15, and
- the second and third floors of Burr Hall from May 15 to June 30.
