Through Their Eyes

By Laura J. Cole ’04 ’08MLS

In the 125 years that bridge Rollins’ past with its present, thousands of students have sat beneath the campuses’ other-worldly oak trees, watched the light flicker across the rippling surface of Lake Virginia, made a home inside the stunning Spanish-styled architecture. They’ve shared their first laugh with someone who became a friend for life, worked closely with classmates on an unforgettable class project, engaged in a conversation with a professor who expanded their worldview. In a recent photo contest sponsored by Rollins Magazine, students were invited to submit images of the people, places, and moments that define their Rollins experience. Here, we invite you to re-experience Rollins as seen through their eyes.

Winning Entry: Violin Bliss by Marie Patrick ’10
"This picture is of a student in the music department at Rollins College. I personally developed each picture in the art department's darkroom; they were not digitally altered. My goal was to bring out the artist behind the music in her element as well as the instrument's beauty."

Marie Patrick, Class of 2010

Marie Patrick, Class of 2010, was born in Haiti, speaks Creole and French, and has been living in the U.S. for past 15 years. A studio art major and art history minor, the Rollins senior will have her senior art show at the Cornell Fine Arts Museum. Before coming to study liberal arts at Rollins, Marie studied art for two years at Savannah College of Art and Design. Of her art, she writes, “I do believe that the simplicity and silence of black and white photography is what gives it power and appeal. My overall goal is not only to captivate the viewer through balanced composition and detailed imagery, but also to seduce the viewer into subconsciously becoming part of the composition.”
