The work of 10 photojournalism students will be featured in a multimedia presentation at 7 p.m. on February 27 at the Bourbon Theatre.
The presentation, which is free and open to the public, will include a slide show and video presentation made by the students. The images and stories were collected during a depth-reporting trip to Sao Paolo, Brazil, to report on issues within the country.
Professor Bruce Thorson and assistant Brian Lehmann of the UNL College of Journalism and Mass Communications led the trip. Students worked in Brazil for three weeks during the university’s winter break, Dec. 22, 2012, through Jan. 4, 2013.
The project is one of many in-depth projects that give students real-world international experience. Students have traveled to India, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, South Africa and Kosovo with the goal of documenting the human condition.
