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
