2. “I was walking past Allard Hall after another photo shoot and saw the light reflecting off the side of the building,” says MacEwan’s photographer Steven Stefaniuk. “I really liked how you could see someone working inside and that the image captures some of our downtown setting.”

5. A bit of serendipity saw the art-science river valley walk organized by the Mitchell Art Gallery as part of Leanne Olsen’s With All Things Considered exhibition coincide with the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup. As volunteers dragged the bottom of the river, participants looked at what they found and discussed how waste is impacting waterways and ecosystems with Dr. David Locky and artist Dwayne Martineau.

6. The task: Take a series of evening shots of students working inside Allard Hall. The challenge: Slow shutter speed and a few accidental bumps. The result: One of our favourite campus shots of the year.
