Photography by Trevor Johnson’08.
Trevor Johnson’08 has prowled nearly every nook and cranny of the Beloit College campus between his stint as a student and more than four subsequent years in college Admissions—now as an associate director—while he’s simultaneously served as one of Beloit’s go-to freelance photographers.
From coaxing portraits out of camera-shy faculty members to lying on the ground to capture the perfect angle on the Indian mounds, this alumnus, originally from Silver Spring, Md., has created a body of work that only an insider of considerable talent could produce.
On Oct. 11, 2012, a Thursday, he set out with his camera on assignment from the Office of Communications and Marketing, ostensibly to take photos for the college’s general use on its website and in publications. During about eight hours of early autumn daylight, he produced a softly lit glimpse inside one given day’s activities on campus, while capturing something of the timeless texture of life at Beloit.
