Princeton University students are showcasing their many opportunities to experience life abroad through "International Eye," an exhibition of photographs taken while participating in international study, internships, service and research.

The Office of International Programs, in collaboration with the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies (PIIRS), the Program in Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies, and the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures, sponsors the annual competition to select photos for the exhibition. A sampling of the photographs may be viewed in the video below.

The 2014 photographs were judged by photographer Emmet Gowin, professor emeritus of visual arts in the Lewis Center for the Arts, in seven categories: People, Abstraction, Cityscape/Architecture, Nature, Landscape, Window on Eurasia and PIIRS Global Seminar, highlighting the summer study abroad experience offered by PIIRS. All of the winning entries may be viewed on the Office of International Programs website.

The exhibition is on view in Burr Hall through mid-March; check the contest website for future viewing locations.
