Adjunct Speech Communications faculty Dustin Cosby is looking for students, staff and faculty members to volunteer for his “I am UCC” photography project. Participants are encouraged to wear their “I am UCC” or “UCCStrong” apparel as seen above.

Adjunct Speech Communication faculty Dustin Cosby is creating a series of portraits to be shown beginning Nov. 16 in Whipple Fine Arts. The finished project will be displayed over a three screen process in the gallery. The photographs will feature students, staff and faculty members wearing their I Am UCC and UCCStrong apparel in a setting of the subjects choosing. He is looking for volunteers to be photographed showing, or to offer anonymous statements about, where they are at in the grieving and healing process after Oct. 1.

In light of the recent tragedy on campus, various individuals and businesses have reached out, trying to do something to help those affected acknowledge and move forward in their healing process. Cosby is no exception.

“I wanted to do something to help us move forward. Something a little more real,” said Cosby. “I think that people are looking at this project as some tangible measure to move forward.”

Volunteers are asked to contact Cosby through Facebook or here on campus. He will be finalizing the project within in the next few weeks.
