Kentucky Monthly February 2012

The photography of four Lindsey Wilson College students is featured in the February issue of Kentucky Monthly magazine.

The students' work is part of the magazine's "Campus Life" photography contest, which features photos that exemplify college life.

The four LWC students who had pictures included in the "Campus Life" section are: Tiffany Begley of Hyden, Ky., Catherine Carmon of Morganfield, Ky., Brooke Crum of Westerville, Ohio, and Beverly Denney of Albany, Ky. Kentucky Monthly is available online and at most newsstands.

"The students from Lindsey Wilson submitted real quality work," said Kelli L. Screiber, Kentucky Monthly art director. "The photos were great and had a certain artistic quality to them. You could tell that these were people who knew what they were doing with a camera. Also they were just a nice diverse selection of photos that showed different facets of college life "  

Denney said photography allows her to "to capture the important moments around me."

"Photography interests me because I like being able to capture the important moments around me," she said. "It is a way to capture the pure beauty of even the simplest things things in life. Photography allows me to document events, places, people, and emotions so that I can have them to look back on in the future."

Denney submitted a photo she took at LWC's first home football game in more than 75 years. The picture shows the campus and public coming together. 

Crum's photograph was the only photo in the contest to receive a full page. The black-and-white shot captures one of Crum's friends enjoying breakfast in the Roberta D. Cranmer Dining & Conference Center.

"We loved Brooke Crum's photo," Screiber said. "It was a great photo that displayed a lot of emotion."

Crum said the photo has special meaning to her.

"This photo means a lot to me because it is a photo of a very close friend of mine," Crum said. "I feel like it captured her personality. I think she looks pretty happy, and I feel like college is a place where I have found a lot of happiness so I guess it captures a bit of college life."

Carmon's photo captures a a shadow on an interior wall of the iconic John B. Begley Chapel, and Begley's picture is of classmate Amelia Withers of Jamestown, Ky., reading a book on the floor of the Katie Murrell Library.

Begley said it was a thrill for her to get a photo published.

"My family was probably more thrilled that I was at first, but actually being able to hold that magazine in my hand and look down at the glossy pages and know that inside it, on one of the pages was a picture that I had taken is a feeling that I'll never be able to describe," she said. "It might not be a big deal to some people, but to me it means the world."
