Even as someone who aspires to be a large animal veterinarian, I have always been intrigued by literature and the arts. This assignment provided a vehicle for a pleasing blend of the two: a written analysis of an art exhibit. I thoroughly enjoyed writing about Corbis and Vivian’s Meier’s images in this exhibit, but I also appreciated viewing these photographs, as they feature important moments that occur in everyday life as well as those that are recorded under scrutiny of the world.
