This was the challenge in the photography project that photographer Brian Megens had; creating 20 different portraits of professors, students, staff, and alumni. In his PechaKucha presentation, he tells about the process of including multiple layers of stories in each photo.

From Siberia to Texas: Uncovering My Family’s Immigration Story One Recipe at a Time
BY MARY KALTENBERG
@ VOL 33
ON MAY 22, 2017
Mary Kaltenberg best introduces her story herself:
"It started during a blizzard storm the first week I arrived back in the United States early 2016. As an activity for my mom and I during this cold snowy day, we gathered recipes and started compiling them into a cohesive cookbook. I asked questions about the origination of the recipe and through each recipe lived a different story. Translating and transcribing developed into a documentation of our family history, rich of funny, suspenseful and adventurous stories. One recipe at a time I uncovered the story of my Jewish, Russian, Polish family - how they became a family, survived in Siberia, were deported and stripped of citizenship and the humor of eventually adapting to American culture."
