Description

Jon Goering is a KU student and a documentary photographer majoring in journalism and French. This summer, he will follow stories in Nicaragua and Trinidad. In Nicaragua, he will document the working conditions of coastal clam farmers. While there, he will also photograph an urban community living in housing devastated by a 1979 earthquake. In Trinidad, he will compile a montage of stories about the Trinidadian people and the environment. All works in this exhibition are ink jet prints on photo paper from digital photographs.
