Even when the campus is quiet, there are moments of enduring beauty — the way the late afternoon light illuminates Athena on the Main Building, the power plant’s modern tangle of pipes framing its early 1900s chimney, the intersection of forms created by UT architects. These things are all around us in our everyday lives, but we are often too busy and distracted to take note of them. A photographer gives us a different way of looking at the world. As Henry David Thoreau said, “The question is not what you look at, but what you see.”
These photos are part of a larger collection of campus scenes that have been captured over many years.
