For Dr. Jillian M. Duquaine-Watson, documentary photography offers a fresh perspective of the natural world.
During the past few years, the senior lecturer in the School of Interdisciplinary Studies
has traveled to the Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge
every month or two to capture images of the native plants and animals. The Friends of Hagerman NWR Foundation
named her Photographer of the Month for January.
“This is the first time I’ve gotten a solo exhibition, so this is a big deal to me,” Duquaine-Watson
said. “It feels like a huge honor because some of the other folks who photograph at the Hagerman, I’ve seen their work, and they do beautiful stuff as well.”
