Escape the dog days of summer, and head inside for a peek at summertime in Alaska, courtesy of UC photojournalist Colleen Kelley of Norwood.
Kelley's exhibit, "August in Alaska: The Coolest Classroom on Earth" will be on display at the main Public Library in downtown Cincinnati until the end of this month.
The photographs are the result of an expedition to Alaska in August 2001, covering the Glacial Field Methods course taught by UC geology professor Thomas V. Lowell.
For two weeks, Kelley shadowed the students and faculty from icy peak to icy peak, capturing the natural aesthetics of the state, as well as the group's diligent research efforts.
Kelley is a 1983 graduate of Norwood High School and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree with an emphasis in art education from UC in 1989.
Her photo credits include work for Architectural Digest, Time-Warner, Cincinnati Bell, the Cincinnati Post and the City of Mason.
The exhibit is located on the second floor of the main library at 800 Vine Street.
9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday
