Keeping Youthful

BY JEFF BOSCHMANN
@ VOL 28 ON NOV 24, 2016

Jeff Boschmann has spent most of his life either being a youth, studying youth, or working with youth in some capacity. While that's really helped with the whole "feeling young forever" thing, he’s found that age and responsibility are really starting to catch up. With that, life has always been a constant series of turning corners and being surprised, which isn't a complaint, it keeps things interesting!

Compassion is Photography

BY LAINA BROWN
@ VOL 28 ON NOV 24, 2016

Laina Brown is an art student at the U of M, a social advocate, and owner of her own business Laina Brown Photography. She loves to enter into people’s monumental events or everyday lives to document and artistically render their memories as a collaborator with them. This love has taken her to spaces like Winnipeg’s “Meet Me at the Bell Tower”, to spaces such as Auschwitz and Treblinka with the March of Remembrance and Hope, to the boarders of Eastern Turkey, and to beautiful weddings all across Western Canada. In each place it is the people she is most interested in, and how they make meaning from their environments - listening and compassion as the keys to successful photography.
