See student views of the world in 'International Eye' exhibition

March 24, 2016 noon

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.

The 2015 photographs were judged by photographer Emmet Gowin, professor of visual arts in the Lewis Center for the Arts, emeritus, in eight categories: Abstraction, Architecture/Cityscape, Landscape/Nature, People, Tigers Abroad, A Window on Eurasia, Innovations for Successful Societies and PIIRS Global Seminar. All of the winning entries may be viewed on the Office of International Programs website.

The exhibition is on view in the second floor atrium of Burr Hall through the end of March, and then moves to Rockefeller College. Check the contest website for future viewing locations.

"My co-workers for my Princeton in France internship were both master's students living in Rouen.
