What made you want to photograph for Faces of Ohio State? What made you want to take it over?
“Growing up, I was always writing, reading, and telling stories. I love gathering information about people and taking photos of them. I find something so intriguing about an encounter of two people who may never see each other again, as if somehow that makes it more meaningful. I love the unwritten stories of strangers, the a-million-and-one potential lives. I take bits and pieces of them with me after we go our separate ways. This is storytelling to me. This is journalism. This is three of my passions in one: people, photography, and words.”
Inspired by Humans of New York, Faces of Ohio State is a blog with the goal of capturing portraits and stories of Buckeyes in and around campus. The creator of this idea graduated and has generously passed on this photo project entirely to me. Combining my major (Journalism) and minors (Media Production and Photography), I am beyond excited to see where this journey will take me. So, if you see me around campus and I ask for your photo, I don’t bite. I want to share your story to Ohio State: a name with a thousand faces.
