The Reynolds School of Journalism and ASUN are organizing a large-scale University wide event called Dear World Live. Dear World Live celebrates all of the things that make our campus community unique through the work of portrait photographer Robert X. Fogarty. His “invest in your voice” approach uses skin as the medium for the message.
Fogarty will take portraits of University students, faculty, staff and friends on Tuesday, Sept. 2, from 2:30-5 p.m. in Room 323 of the Joe Crowley Student Union. Following the photo shoot Robert will prepare a keynote address where he will discuss his time and experience at Nevada. Additionally, he will release all of the portraits he took on campus at this keynote address. The keynote is sure to be memorable because Robert will welcome a handful of portrait participants to join him on stage and tell the story behind their portraits.
