Intern Captures Fresh Views of Campus
Photos: Damon Tighe
Veterans of employment at NIH can become blind to the campus' reserves of grandeur. Sometimes, it takes the eyes of a summer intern to see the place afresh. These images of NIH buildings taken by a college student ambitious enough to combine molecular biology with freelance photography share a perspective of awe, of edifices seen from a posture of humility and wonder. That perspective seems to sneak up only occasionally on people for whom this landscape has become routine. Knocked off schedule by hours worked overtime, or perhaps by a project running late, longtime NIH'ers can sometimes recover their vision. These photos, then, are therapy for eyes that may have become inured to the familiarities of the workplace.
