Assistant professor of photography Lauren Greenwald considered becoming a doctor, pursued a career in architecture, lived on a sailboat for a year and worked as a project manager renovating apartments in Paris – all before finally going to graduate school to study photography. Her work is a reflection of that wanderlust, but the lens through which she examines the world could work for anyone, not just the aspiring artist.
