FINE ART CAUSES A RIPPLE
In 2019, Stillwater abandoned its edges through dizzying and innovative design. In 2020, Stillwater seeks to disrupt – to ripple the otherwise static artistic pockets at Ithaca College, to inspire a kinetic and creative incubator beyond the pages of the magazine, and to offer a space for all art to thrive, to be witnessed, and to be grappled with. Stillwater’s fall 2019 campaign, Fine Art Causes A Ripple, invites the literary and artistic community at Ithaca College to respond to a simple question: How do you use art to disrupt spaces in stasis?
Kristen Harrison (‘20) is a photo editor of The Ithacan and a former staff photographer for The Morning Call, the newspaper of Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley. Although a still photographer at heart, Kristen has previously worked as an assistant editor for the feature documentary, Her Earth, and at Insignia Films in New York City. This week, Kristen sat down with Stillwater’s co-editor-in-chief, Tara Eng, to discuss the liberties and restraints of taking a fine arts approach to photojournalism.
