CC senior Anais Gude won both the grand prize and an honorable mention in the Associated Colleges of the Midwest’s second annual ACM Off-Campus Study Photo Contest. Gude’s photo “Working on Manhood” took the top honor. Her photo “Iron Fist” was one of 10 honorable mentions in the competition.
Gude, a sociology major and Asian studies minor, said she was exploring a Beijing hutong, or traditional neighborhood, when she came upon a group of migrant construction workers who were surprised by her presence, and even more surprised when she spoke Chinese. The winning photo depicts a boy who, when Gude asked if she could take his picture, nodded silently, took a long drag from his cigarette, and blew it toward the camera.
The winning photos will be featured in a traveling exhibit that will visit 11 of the ACM colleges. It is scheduled to be exhibited in Worner Campus Center February 24-March 3. Check out the
