Capturing the Days with Will Yurman
One of the highlights of our May/June issue is a photo essay featuring the work of Will Yurman, a photojournalism instructor in the College of Communications. The inspiration for our feature was Will’s online project, “A Day A Photo,” which he started about a decade ago and continues by posting one photo, every single day. It’s a wonderful collection of captured moments—often funny, sometimes sad, but always authentic.
Before coming to Penn State a couple of years ago (note the photo above, a colorful moment viewed through the Allen Street gate), Will was a staff photographer with the Rochester (N.Y.) Democrat and Chronicle. He’ll be back in upstate New York this weekend for the launch of a show based on his online project, which opens Sunday at ARTISANworks Gallery in Rochester. If you’re in the area, you should check it out.
