Roosevelt students' photo exhibit at library

Published:

Photographs by three seniors at Theodore Roosevelt High School in Kent will be on display at the Kent Free Library, 312 W. Main St., through the end of May.

Anika Aberegg, Libby Bradford and Audrey Coyne are students in Mike McClure's Photography 3 class.

Audrey said that her collection shows off her best work, but also places to which she has a strong connection: her own backyard, downtown Kent, and Italy, where she traveled a year ago.

She will study photojournalism at the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University this fall.

A trip to Nicaragua inspired Anika's collection. She said that she was particularly interested in taking photos of the people she met while on a teaching trip there, and she hoped that her audience would be able to relate to the faces in the photos.

She will attend Ursuline College in Pepper Pike this fall and study special and elementary education.

Libby also chose her best work for her collection, and noted that it reflects her love of nature and the outdoors.

She approaches her subjects from unusual or unexpected angles in order to provide a unique perspective. She also will attend the Scripps School of Journalism at OU this fall.

The Kent Free Library welcomes artists to apply to display their work. For more information, contact the Information Desk at 330-673.4414 or kflinfo@kentfreelibrary.org.

The Kent Free Library serves the residents of the Kent City School District and the surrounding area by providing educational and entertainment materials, interesting programs for children, teens and adults, and a comfortable space for studying, relaxing, or meeting.
