The Photographers

Ryan Muir ’06

By Vassar Quarterly


It was strange being back and realizing this was the first year that every student with whom I’d walked the halls of Vassar had graduated. The place didn’t change much, and it was too cold to really observe a lot of student life that was out in public (because there wasn’t any). I don’t think I felt the place had changed much, but it was great to feel so welcomed by our subjects, and everything went pretty smoothly for me on a busy day.
