Dana Curran – First Year, Term 3 Work
A year ago today I was “relieved of my duties” as Communications Specialist for a leading financial investment company. A year ago tomorrow I sent an email to a former NESOP graduate to find out if you could really make a life and a living as a photographer. A week later I stepped into her studio and my life changed.
Today, one year later, I was the lead photographer for the Evian Live Young Photo Studio Event in New York City hosted by tennis player Maria Sharapova.
Evian brand ambassadors invited New Yorkers off the street to model in their own Babies on the Inside Ad campaign. They were given Rollerbabies Tshirts and were encouraged to show their ‘live young spirit.’ Within minutes their photos popped up on a supersized digital collage on site and on Evian’s facebook page, instantly becoming part of Evian’s Global Live Young Community.
The focus of this campaign promotes Evian’s Live Young Month encouraging New Yorkers to seek memorable experiences, try new things, and seize every moment. How ironic. If you asked me a year ago to picture what I would be doing today it would look NOTHING like this. I didn’t even own a decent camera.
I feel incredibly lucky. Every day for the last year I have devoted myself to seek memorable experiences, try new things, and live young every moment.

Dawn Anderson – First Year, Term 2 Work
I’ve been living near and on MIT’s campus for nearly 15 years and have been marveling at the incredible transformation that has been occurring. MIT’s campus beautification efforts are just one example of how the community is evolving, in my opinion, for the better and I’m captivated by this intentional movement which embraces the future.
I jokingly call these my Bladerunner images.
How could I not start with Gehry’s Stata Center . I rarely drive down Vassar Street without pausing to take a look. There is so much architectural detail to look at and each time I could find a new fixation. My intention is to capture this evolution at night when the campus is asleep and there is less traffic to distract the viewer.
A colleague said that they have never seen a decent black and white shot of the Stata Center . I hope my images will fill the gap.
