Storytelling with Images at Luther During the Pandemic

The ideas and viewpoints expressed in the posts on the Ideas and Creations blog are solely the view of the author(s). Luther College's mission statement calls us to "embrace diversity and challenge one another to learn in community," and to be "enlivened and transformed by encounters with one another, by the exchange of ideas, and by the life of faith and learning." Alumni, faculty, staff, students and friends of the college are encouraged to express their views, model "good disagreement" and engage in respectful dialogue.

We've had quite a story to tell this past year. Capturing engaging, personal, and vibrant video and images is already a challenge. Adding mask wearing, social distancing, cancellations, and last minute changes didn't make it any easier!

The photographers and producers in the Photo and Video Bureaus stepped up to that challenge to gather some incredible images and were able to tell some intriguing stories which all had a common theme: The Luther community remained committed to keeping the campus safe and together so students could continue to learn actively.

Homecoming, Christmas at Luther, Giving Day, athletic events, and our in-person commencement are a few events that looked a bit different, but all involved found creative solutions to make them happen. As you'll see in the photos below, it was worth it!

Our student photographers in 2020-21 were Wyatt Hill ‘21 (Virtual Voice Lesson), Lillian Reiser ‘21 (Christmas at Luther), Anthony Hamer '22 (Candlelight Vigil), Armando Jenkins-Vazquez ‘21 (Memorial Day video), Danica Nolton ‘23 (Track and Field Meet), Nick Greseth ‘23 (First Snow on Campus), Karisa Vijums ‘22 (Commencement), Hunter Meyer ’22 (Discovery Camp) , and Navia Erbst (Sigma Tau Delta Initiation).
