Alumni Spotlight

Gabriella Demczuk BA

Gabriella Demczuk
BA '13, Fine Arts

In 2016, alumna Gabriella Demczuk, a freelance photographer for The New York Times, traveled to Iowa capturing images of presidential candidates—a job that required laying on the floor and hustling around rooms to find the best angles.

“When you see someone reading The Times and your photo is there on the front page, it’s such a great feeling. It’s also a very different feeling than having your photo [online]. In the newspaper, it feels more real, more permanent.”

Alumni Spotlight

Demczuk's favorite photo from her time in Iowa came in the final days before the state’s caucus at a rally for Hillary Clinton in Iowa City.
