Photography exhibit at Utica College

For anyone reading this post in the central New York area, there will be an interesting photography exhibit next Tuesday, May 28th in the Utica College Library Concourse by Utica College students, under the direction of Professor Linnea Franits. Here's her description of the project:
 "In the fall of 2012, a group of Occupational Therapy graduate students handed out cameras to people with the goal of finding out more about how certain circumstances have impacted their lives. They gave each photographer a simple prompt such as ‘Take pictures of how your life has changed since your diagnosis of cancer’ and encouraged them to interpret this freely. The photographs that those individuals took and the stories they told about them gave the students a deeper understanding of how life events can deprive or enrich our own narratives."
