Wanderlust: Travel Photography by Julie Jungers

- Julie Jungers 2012
Although “the world is getting smaller” and “the global economy” are common refrains, nevertheless an enormous swath of the planet remains inaccessible, inhospitable, or politically embargoed. Few people have the access, resources, or desire to explore every corner of the globe.
Julie Jungers is one of those people. In the past twenty-five-plus years, she and her husband Frank have visited nearly two hundred countries, several of which are geographically very remote, or whose visas are not easily awarded to American travelers.
The exhibition and book Wanderlust: Travel Photography by Julie Jungers are a select chronicle of Julie’s extraordinary adventures, including more than 100 photographs from 13 countries in the Eastern Hemisphere. As she has often noted, her photography is a means of sharing her good fortune and experiences with her family and friends, a way of letting those close to her see the world through her eyes.
This slideshow offers a glimpse of the images on display in the exhibition.
Wanderlust: Travel Photography by Julie Jungers opens September 6, 2012 with a reception at 5 p.m. The exhibition closes October 14. The Ronna and Eric Hoffman Gallery is open Tuesday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. All gallery events are free; parking on campus is free on weekends.
