Summer evening at Indiana University

I had the opportunity yesterday to capture a beautiful summer evening at Indiana University Bloomington via drone. This was the first time this summer I have been able to fly in nice weather. One item on my “to drone” checklist for campus is the various limestone features around campus. I got lucky and caught the duck atop Goodbody Hall highlighted in incredible evening sunlight (first image below).

Bryan House at Indiana University

Last fall I had the opportunity to work on a project documenting the William Lowe and Charlotte Lowe Bryan House for a book about the history of the home. The residence, constructed in 1924 by IU’s tenth president, is the traditional home of the president of the university. This shoot was fascinating in part because I’m a huge fan of older homes: my wife and I own one about a mile away that predates Bryan House by four years.

Back to film

Earlier this year I finally got my 1954 Rolleiflex Automat repaired. It’s been a vintage paperweight since 2012 when the camera strap failed in a rainstorm and fell onto the sidewalk in the Chicago Loop. Thanks to Mark Hansen for going through the camera and repairing the busted viewfinder. I have shot film on and off again since 2010, primarily with a Holga. To test out the repair and to (re)teach myself how to shoot on the Rollei, I exposed a few rolls and sent them off to The Find Lab. Here are the results of a few recent jaunts around IU’s campus:

Indiana University’s Old Crescent

I have been fascinated with the Old Crescent ever since I started working for Indiana University. It is the oldest part of campus and an area I tend to frequent often since it is near my office. In the past several years, the university administration has prioritized the reinvigoration of this corner of the IU Bloomington campus. For decades, the old limestone buildings housed primarily administrative offices. In recent years, however, these buildings have been gradually renovated and converted back into classroom buildings. The result is a more student-centric area of campus. This project is one that I tend to focus on more in winter and early spring when my daily work for the university slows. I try to shoot it using a historical aesthetic with an emphasis on the details and textures I find on my frequent jaunts through this beautiful part of campus.
