The holiday season is no longer “quickly approaching,” we’re in the midst of it right now! People are bustling from shop to online shop looking for the perfect gifts for their friends and family. However, what about a gift that gives back? A Temple University School of Media and Communications (SMC) professor is way ahead of you!
Ed Trayes, who has taught photojournalism here since 1967 and spent a lifetime taking iconic photos from around the world, has graciously donated his entire collection to SMC. Over 50,000 (and counting) breathtaking images are now available online for purchase and would easily make the perfect gift. What makes the collection even more special is that 100 percent of the proceeds go towards a scholarship fund for students at Temple.
The Ed Trayes Photo Archives team will be hosting its first pop-up exhibit this coming Wednesday, December 10th in the lobby of the Liacouras Center before and during halftime of the Temple men’s basketball game against Towson University. Be there at 8:00pm for treats, giveaways, and a chance to sample some of Trayes’ recent work featuring the university and the scenic City of Brotherly Love.
To purchase from the collection visit http://edtrayes.com or for more information email firstname.lastname@example.org and follow them on Twitter and Instagram @edtrayes.
Hope to see you on Wednesday; I know I’ll be there!
