During the spring semester, Pipo Nguyen-Duy, professor of studio art and photography, took his students on a street photography field trip to downtown Cleveland.

For second-year Pang Fei Chiang, the trip gave him a welcome change of scenery and the opportunity to explore Cleveland. “It was refreshing to be photographing outside of Oberlin,” says Fei Chiang. “I was also able to see what Cleveland has to offerthere was so much going on in the city!”

While in Cleveland, students took photographs at the Museum of Contemporary Art, a glass blowing studio and gallery called the Glass Bubble Project, and the West Side Market.

The experience also gave students the chance to capture candid images. “As we were driving to the West Side Market, we saw three teenagers posing on the Cleveland sign with the city landscape as the background,” says Fei Chiang. “This made a great spontaneous photo.”
