Goucher hosts immigration discussion panel



"Tamar Jacoby, president and CEO of ImmigrationWorks USA, answers a question from the audience in the Hyman Forum of the Athenaeum at Goucher College Tuesday, September 28, 2010. Jacoby was one of four panelists invited for a discussion entitled, "The Arizona Immigration Law: Protecting America or Subverting America?"


One of the reasons I love Goucher College so much is all the interesting, intelligent, and influential figures who are invited to campus.

Most recently, the college hosted a panel discussion on the proposed changes to immigration laws in Arizona. I didn’t know much about the law, and since the panel included members of varying political affiliations, I used the event as an opportunity to educate myself.

I also had to take photographs of it, which is usually the case when speakers come to campus. I’ve shot so many of these types of events over the years that I know exactly what to expect.

This year, I want to be more creative in how I frame all of these shots of people with microphones in their faces that I have to take.
