Student photographers see the world through a global lens

During spring quarter, undergraduate and graduate students affiliated with the Stanford Global Studies programs and centers were encouraged to participate in the 2016 Stanford Global Studies Student Photo Contest. Students submitted images in several categories, including altered images, global events, natural world, people and travel.

Students in SGS travel far and wide for research, language training and internships.  Through these photos, they bring the sights, sounds and memories of these far-off places back to us and share their experiences with a wider audience,” said JANE STAHL, office manager for Stanford Global Studies. “The photos are just extraordinary, and judging them is always so difficult.”

More than 100 images were judged, and some of the winning photos are featured here. To see others, visit the Stanford Arts website.
