Denney of Albany, Ky. Kentucky Monthly is available online and at
"The students from Lindsey Wilson submitted real quality work,"
said Kelli L. Screiber, Kentucky Monthly art director. "The photos
were great and had a certain artistic quality to them. You could
tell that these were people who knew what they were doing with a
camera. Also they were just a nice diverse selection of photos that
showed different facets of college life "
Denney said photography allows her to "to capture the important
moments around me."
"Photography interests me because I like being able to capture the
important moments around me," she said. "It is a way to capture the
pure beauty of even the simplest things things in life. Photography
allows me to document events, places, people, and emotions so that
I can have them to look back on in the future."
Denney submitted a photo she took at LWC's first home football
game in more than 75 years. The picture shows the campus and public
Crum's photograph was the only photo in the contest to receive a
full page. The black-and-white shot captures one of Crum's friends
enjoying breakfast in the Roberta D. Cranmer Dining &
"We loved Brooke Crum's photo," Screiber said. "It was a great
photo that displayed a lot of emotion."
Crum said the photo has special meaning to her.
"This photo means a lot to me because it is a photo of a very
close friend of mine," Crum said. "I feel like it captured her
personality. I think she looks pretty happy, and I feel like
college is a place where I have found a lot of happiness so I guess
it captures a bit of college life."
Carmon's photo captures a a shadow on an interior wall of the
iconic John B. Begley Chapel, and Begley's picture is of classmate
Amelia Withers of Jamestown, Ky., reading a book on the floor of
the Katie Murrell Library.
Begley said it was a thrill for her to get a photo
"My family was probably more thrilled that I was at first, but
actually being able to hold that magazine in my hand and look down
at the glossy pages and know that inside it, on one of the pages
was a picture that I had taken is a feeling that I'll never be able
to describe," she said. "It might not be a big deal to some people,
but to me it means the world."
