Members of Epsilon Delta, George Mason’s chapter of the Phi Beta Delta international honor society, have organized a photography exhibit, “Framing Our World,” in the Johnson Center Gallery. The exhibit runs through the end of this week, and the gallery is open daily from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
The exhibit marks the first anniversary of the founding of Epsilon Delta at George Mason and serves as a prelude to International Week, April 13-20. New members of the honor society will be inducted on April 15.
The photographs in the exhibit were taken primarily by faculty and student Epsilon Delta members and show images–portraits, landscapes, and still lifes–that reveal much about countries and cultures around the world. There is also a video loop showing slides from the Middle East and the Balkans, as well as a video documentary on the experiences of nursing students in Nicaragua.
“I’m excited about the energy the exhibit has generated,” says Julie Christensen, associate provost for educational programs and chapter coordinator. “It is clear this is the tip of the iceberg, and that there are myriad images and stories about the world beyond that Mason faculty, students, and staff have to tell.”
