The works of award-winning photographer Don Doll, S.J., will be celebrated in an exhibit sponsored by the Asian World Center at Creighton University during an opening reception from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 7, in the Skutt Student Center Ballroom.
The exhibit marks the beginning of a series of events promoting the 8th Asian Culture Week at Creighton University. His photographs will be on display through Oct. 16.
Fr. Doll is an internationally recognized photographer whose work has been featured in National Geographic and eight Day in the Life of… books. The exhibit also marks the release of his newest book; A Call to Vision, A Jesuit's Perspective on the World. The book details the story of his 'vocation within a vocation' as a Jesuit Photographer with 188 photographs from around the world and includes pictures of his early work with Native Americans and recent photographs of Jesuits and their work around the world.
This is the third book in Doll’s “Vision” trilogy which began with Crying for a Vision (1976) and Vision Quest: Men, Women and Sacred Sites of the Sioux Nation (1994). It features both black and white and color images spanning Doll’s 50-year career.
