As he did this fall, Darien Henry ’14 set out to capture in photographs the natural beauty of the Holy Cross campus during winter. This time, he was hoping his portfolio included that one special ingredient: snow.
Mother Nature happily obliged. As of this post, Worcester has received 81 inches of the white stuff.
“There is something wonderfully elegant about the campus once snow arrives,” says Henry, a photography intern in the Office of Public Affairs. “A fresh blanket of snow gives the campus a fascinating, storybook feel with hillsides, buildings and tree branches covered in white. As a Harry Potter fan, I love the winter look of the school because it reminds me of Hogwarts.”
Henry, who took a digital photography class in middle school and “immediately found a passion in capturing beautiful moments and scenery,” says each of New England’s seasons provides a distinctive new perspective on campus. The New York City native with a sociology major and minor in visual arts is already looking toward his next photographic installment. Spring will arrive before we know it!
