A summer SOURCE grant allows art photography major Charlotte Howard to explore the secrets of a South Korean paradise.

Charlotte Howard ’20 dreamed of visiting South Korea for years before she actually traveled there last summer. The art photography major in the College of Visual and Performing Arts (VPA) secured an internship in Seoul and spent almost a year planning her trip. “I made a connection with Izzy Schreiber, a fashion photographer working in Seoul, and he took me on as an intern for the summer,” Howard says. “South Korea is rich in popular culture, and I am fascinated by Korean aesthetics and how they emerge in U.S. visual culture.”
