Guanian Beach Boys

OIP 2006 Photo Contest

The Office of International Programs hosted the 2006 International Education Week photo exhibition, featuring photographs taken by Penn students who studied abroad, and by international students studying at Penn. The images in the exhibition chronicle students’ experiences across six continents and provide a glimpse into the diverse environments in which they studied, offering insight into the people, places and moments that inspired them. The winning photographs are available in the online gallery at www.oip.upenn.edu/service/photo.

The first place winning photograph from the Study Abroad category, Ghanaian Beach Boys (at left), was taken by SAS senior Laura T. Nanni while studying abroad in Ghana. The photograph—taken on the western coast of Ghana—depicts two young boys from the village who helped Ms. Nanni cross a river in their canoe.
