Discovering Place: Images from the St. Edward’s University Documentary Photography Project

Austin History Center / November 5, 2019 – January 19, 2020

The St. Edward's University Austin Documentary Photography Project is a partnership between St. Edward's University and the Austin History Center wherein students learned how to create visually engaging and intellectually challenging stories of the people and places of Austin. The partnership resulted in the St. Edward's University Austin Documentary Photography Project Collection (AR.2019.026), consisting primarily of digital photographs documenting various facets of the Austin area community as selected by the student photographers. Selections from the collection are now on display.
