Traveling alumna and students to share world photographs, stories Center for Global Education photo contest winners, Karyn Planett '70 discuss enhancing study abroad with photography

For students interested in studying abroad or photography, the
Center for Global Education
will be hosting the talk,
Through My Eyes: A Foreign Lens
, on Wednesday, Nov. 4, from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at Argyros Forum, Room 201.

In addition to a talk by special guest speakers, alumna Karyn Planett ’70 and her husband Geoff Thompson, previous study abroad students will also share their personal stories and experiences as well as the winning photos from the students who won the Center for Global Education Photo Contest.

Guest speaker Planett credits catching the travel bug in part to a childhood trip from New York to France and also to her own global education experience as a Chapman student: an eight-month round-the-world study tour as part of Chapman’s Semester at Sea program. Those early experiences sparked a passionate career of world travel as a cruise photographer and writer, living shipboard and traveling the planet from coastline to coastline.

Planett says that she’s “just a traveler with a camera,” but she’s also a storyteller who wishes to share her world traveling tales  and photography tips with us, many of which can be found in her and Thompson’s most recent book,
How To Capture Your Travel Stores In Words & Pictures.

Though My Eyes: A Foreign Lens is part of
International Education Week 2015
, and is free and open to the public.
