"Le Couloir Orange" - Roussillon, Provence, France
by Jared Knepper
I snapped this photo while wandering through a long series of winding lanes and charming passageways during a weekend outing from Paris to the south of France. Roussillon is known for its vibrant orange soil & landscapes, and the entirety of this enchanting provincial village was built to match this palette.
"A Scene Set in Time" - Dean's Village, Edinburgh, Scotland
by Emma Santos
Dean's Village is a historic and well-traveled center point on the Water of Leith river in the city of Edinburgh. The village looks ageless, like it could be out of a movie from last year or a hundred years ago. The serenity of nature and water intwined with architecture is one of the most beautiful places in the middle of a city that I could imagine.
"In the Name of Allah" - Pemba, Zanzibar, Tanzania
by Amelia Payne
In many places the lines between sacred and secular blur. Zanzibar is one such place. In the US, thousands of chickens are killed every day, but in Zanzibar each death is sanctified by the ritualistic halal butchering practices. Before the chicken can be prepared for lunch the slaughterer must face mecca and utter the blessing "In the name of Allah, Allah is great". Here, the simple slaughter of an animal is given more meaning.
"April 19" - Pink Mamma, Paris, France
by Jared Knepper
This collection of curiosities in a sunlit Parisian stairwell was a favorite hidden treasure from a series of adventures had on the most delightfully sun-soaked day of my spring in Paris.
"Just a Stop Away" - Montreal, QC, Canada
by Liana Sterling
Billy Wilms (FILM '20) between the metro.
"Rainy Days" - Paris, France
by Katherine Beauregard
An art piece consisting of umbrellas covering a small shopping street in Paris.
"The Causeway Coast" - Ireland
by Erin Warner
The Giant's Causeway of Ireland isn't just known for its geometric rocks on the coast, it's beautiful hillsides along the coast. Here is a hiking view in the daily life of a Champlain Student abroad in Ireland.
