During the final months of the Winter 2020 semester, students in Professor David Turnley’s Documentary Photography course photographed their lives during the COVID-19 pandemic. Turnley created a video compilation of their efforts, revealing a community grappling with new realities with resilience, courage, and honesty. 

Jeff Seidel covered this course project in an article for the Detroit Free Press, with a focus on Stamps student Konrad Tenwolde (BFA 20) and his wife Jenna, a labor and delivery nurse at St. Joseph Mercy Oakland Hospital in Pontiac.

I am so incredibly proud of the amazing work, of all of my students, who committed their hearts and souls to this project,” Turnley said
