Award Winning Photographs currently exhibited at Park Library

| Author: CMU Libraries

Award winning photographs by Steve Jessmore are on display through August 14th at Park Library as part of the exhibition Birds Doing Stuff: A Retrospective on the Busy Lives of Michigan Wildlife. 

A CMU alum and former Central Michigan University Photographer, Jessmore has had an incredible career transformation. For nearly four decades, he worked in journalism and as a photographer for colleges and universities across Michigan. When the 2020 COVID-19 shutdown limited opportunities to photograph people in action, he turned his attention to non-human life. The result: within a year, Jessmore’s photographs won top prize and honorable mention in the professional category of the prestigious Audubon Photography Awards.
