A Wrap-up of Duke’s Science Photo Walk

Another photo walk has come and gone, but some stunning images are here to stay. The walk is a curious experiment — we bring a variety of people together, cluster them into small spaces with a mere handful of minutes at each location, and step back to see what happens — yet we are impressed with the results every time. Despite being rushed (we marched through four sites in two hours!) our participants captured some serene, candid and all-together surreal moments along Duke’s Science Drive. We hope you enjoy these photos as much as we do.
