The value of a good photographer

If a picture’s worth a thousand words, what’s the value of a good photographer? We had a chance to consider that question this summer with the advent of our new Communications Intern program. Therese Behrens, a member of Trinity School at Greenlawn‘s class of 2010, had camera and did travel throughout the height, breadth and width of Notre Dame QuarkNet Center and NDeRC activities. (See her NDeRC blog.) Above are two images from among the set she captured and we posted of student research associates at NDQC. It is hard to say why great images draw the eye and engage the imagination, when other images don’t. Good photographers seem to know the difference, and Theresa plainly does.
