College of DuPage Photography Alum Rachel Asmus shared the story of her career in Equine Photography and her experience at the last Breeder’s Cup with Silicon and Silver.
“Since leaving COD I have pursued my passion for photography and horses. I ended up transferring to Midway University in Midway, Kentucky where I graduated with my Bachelors in Equine Management. Currently I am pursuing my masters in Equine Business and hope to run my own farm someday.
I have had an interest in Photography for many years and took as many photo classes as I could in high school and college. I mainly photograph horses, nature, and landscapes. Horses are my favorite subject because they are such beautiful animals and I have always shown a big interest in them. During my time in Kentucky I had the opportunity to go to many horse events as a spectator and take photos. This fall I got the chance to attend the Breeder’s Cup and watch history being made.
I never thought that I would be lucky enough to attend the Breeder’s Cup let alone be a Photo Runner and be more behind the scenes at such a historic event. My advisor from Midway contacted me asking me if I was free the weekend of the race because she had something that she thought I may be interested in doing.
When I got back to her she told me it was to help some photographers at the Breeder’s Cup. I had never been a Runner before and really didn’t know what it would entail. My main job over the two days was to bring the memory cards from the photographers at the finish line and winners’ circle to the editors in the media center and then back to the photographers before the next race. I quickly figured out the best route, but at times it was definitely challenging with so many spectators.The photographer who was looking for some help took some of my school’s graduation photos this past May and was looking forward to having me come down to help.
The Wednesday night before the big event he held a BBQ at his farm in Versailles, KY where I got the opportunity to meet the group of photographers and editors that I was going to be working with for the weekend. There were people from Canon, The Lexington-Herald, and The Blood Horse at the BBQ. It was a wonderful experience and one that I will definitely never forget. I was able to network with both people in the photography industry as well as the horse industry. I was also able to ask questions regarding equipment and photography so it was also very educational.” – Rachel Asmus
COD Photography Alum Robin Tryloff to be Featured in “The Power and Politics of Anger” Exhibit at the Woman Made Gallery November 13 to December 20November 2, 2015
Anger is typically stigmatized as an inarticulate, childish, excessive and undesirable emotion to have or express. Yet anger also has the power to mobilize people, to spur individuals into taking action to try and influence situations that may otherwise seem beyond their control.
Anger’s effects can be profound: the emotion may lie dormant inside an individual or within an entire generation for decades, slowly building in intensity until it explodes in the form of protests, riots, or war.
The Power and Politics of Anger investigates both the positive and negative role that anger plays in art, culture, politics, and everyday life. We seek works in all media that address questions such as: What does anger look like? Is there an “aesthetics” of anger? How is anger registered in works of art through content and/or form? How does identity—gender, race, socioeconomic status—influence social and cultural perceptions of anger as well as an individual’s right to express it? When is anger attractive? When is anger sexualized? When does anger create vulnerability? What is the role of anger in community building? When is anger healthy and generative? How can anger be leveraged to foster wellbeing?
Exhibiting Artists: Micaela Anaya, Annette Barbier, Cat Chow, Sara Convery, Bronwyn Elkuss, Angela Fegan, Stacey Gee, Tiffany Gholar, Linda Gleitz, Tonia Hughes, Vivian Le, Sue Lee, Gayla Lemke, Marcy Lichterman, Noelle Mason, Amy Misurelli Sorensen, Bonnie Peterson, Alma Shoaf, Anna Showers-Cruser, Alice Simpson, Priscilla Smith, Angela Swan, Robin Tryloff, Kathy Weaver. JUROR: Angee Lennard
“The Power and Politics of Anger” runs from November 13 to December 20, 2015.
