Sixteen Emerson students who attended a summer course at the College’s Kasteel Well in the Netherlands recently completed an impressive photography project with faculty member and professional photographer Gerlo Beernink.

The annual project has students learning about portraiture, and taking portrait-style photographs of local business owners who live in the village near the Emerson castle.

All of this year’s photographs can be viewed on Beernink’s Flickr website.

The students involved in the recent project were: Brianna Arrighi ’17, Charlotte Knoerl-Morrill ’16, Chris Idzal ’17, Corey Potter ’16, Daniel Clemens ’17, Ellie Brelis ’16, Greg Wayne ’16, Jacob Sigler ’16, Jacob Stibbe ’18, John Tancredi ’17, Kathleen Burke ’16, Lindsey Gonzalez ’17, Maggie Noren ’17, Marc Babcock ’17, and Zach Rothfeld ’17.

Several new study abroad programs have launched this summer at Emerson through the Global Pathways initiative. Students this summer are also studying in Ireland, Greece, France, Czech Republic, Mexico, and Austria.
