Photography of Local Susquehanna Student Featured in Exhibit
SELINSGROVE—Photographs taken by Susquehanna University junior Lauren Lamas, of Selinsgrove, are featured in “Flavors of the Sun,” an exhibit celebrating Spanish Heritage Month at Bloomsburg University. Lamas shot the images in Nicaragua and Costa Rica during a six-month study-abroad program that ended in July.
The exhibit photos depict nature and wildlife in both Costa Rica and Nicaragua, using natural light and vibrant color. Lamas made photography her hobby at the age of 10, but she is now concentrating on photojournalism and professional photography as a communications major at Susquehanna.
The exhibit runs through Oct. 19 at the Multicultural Center at Bloomsburg, which is sponsoring the exhibit in tandem with the university’s Museum Exhibition class. "Flavors of the Sun" also features the work of ceramicist Abigail Smith Kurecian.
