Students can travel the world in the FedEx Global Education Center, thanks to the 2018 Carolina Global Photography Exhibition.
The exhibit, which runs from Jan. 10 to July 20, features photographs from the 18th annual Carolina Global Photography Competition. The photographers are UNC students, alumni and faculty. Many of them are amateurs.
Katie Bowler Young, the director of global relations at UNC Global, said the photographs display the breadth of opportunities students, faculty and alumni have when going abroad. The photographs come from study abroad programs or international research and internships. The top placing photos feature refugee camps in Jordan and a phone booth in Cuba.
“Carolina does a lot to share the cultures of the world and illustrate the experiences of the students, faculty and staff who travel there,” Young said.
There were 800 entries in this year’s competition and 29 were chosen to be displayed in the Global Center. Those who select the photographs include student representatives, a competition planning committee, Center for Global Initiatives interns and faculty from departments such as Romance Studies and Art.
