The strawberry moon of June 20th and 21st, 2016 evoked memories of Halloween, at least as it presented itself in Davis, California. Shadows on the moon unnatural to its inherent craters and textures prevented a clear if cloudy view for the majority of the evening, giving a unique opportunity to photograph its effect on the atmosphere (inclusive of pollution) and minutia of the skyline. With a truly cosmic appeal, the view of the clouds alone was reminiscent of some of NASA’s more outstanding shots, magnifying the similarities between microcosm and macrocosm even more.

I am a rising Master of Research (M.Res) English Literature candidate at the University of Glasgow (expected 2017), an incoming MFA Writing candidate at Sarah Lawrence College (expected 2019), and a recent Honors Program graduate of the B.A. Studio Art program at Albertus Magnus College in New Haven, Connecticut (2015). From 2015 - 2016, I served as an English, Writing, and Creative Enrichment Tutor for the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation, a Native American Reservation in Brooks, California, and from 2014 - 2015 as a Writing Associate (Tutor) in the Albertus Magnus College Writing Center. I am a Writer and Photographer for The Glasgow Guardian, and am class representative for M.Res English Literature students on the Student Staff Liaison Committee (SSLC) and Students' Representative Council (SRC). This year, I look forward to writing, photographing my perspective on our world, exploring Europe, and pursuing further academic and professional opportunity. View all posts by Caroline C.
