Last month, a group of 12 Emory students, faculty and staff ventured to Bolivia to take part in one of the University’s Journeys of Reconciliation. University Photography’s Kay Hinton was on hand to document the trip.

“The Bolivian photo assignment was an exciting and daunting task. How does one stay focused on documenting the work of your eleven companions when you are surrounded with such beauty and kindness? The people of Ambana supplied the quick answer. They embraced us and ignored the camera. A blessing for any photographer,” Hinton said.
