NEBRASKAland Summer Residency Program

This summer, Lexi Christensen, a student at John Brown University in northwest Arkansas, became NEBRASKAland Magazine’s first summer photography resident. During this time, she continued her development as a photographer by shooting various assignments for the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, receiving critiques of her work throughout, researching story topics, and uploading her files into NEBRASKAland’s cloud-based storage system. You can see some of her work below.

NEBRASKAland is already planning next summer’s residency. If you know any college students interested, please have them contact me at Jeff.Kurrus@nebraska.gov.
