Oree ’11, speaks to Voyage Baltimore about his work, challenges he’s faced along the way, and what matters most to him. “A lot of people say that I capture the essence of who they are, but also they look different in the photographs that I take of them. I’m very methodical with how I photograph and I take everything into account when I photograph someone, and I take great care in their experience and the results.” You can read the full article here.
  • Work by Daina Savage, Vice President of Strategic Communications and former poet laureate of Lancaster, is part of Poetry in Transit, which has placed 20 poems inside Red Rose Transit Authority buses.
