The life and times of Courtney Triplett

I am an advertising major with minors in graphic arts imaging and technologies and business. I’m originally from Boomer, NC and I’m a junior. I like to read, listen to music and just hang out with my friends. I’m currently considering transferring from ASU to UNCC or UNCG due to the constant gloomy weather up here! I really like warm weather and sunshine! I don’t really care to write blogs or anything like that. The closest thing that I have is a Facebook and I intend to keep it that way!

HoLt Menzies: an overview

An excerpt from Life Through a 55mm Lens.
“It was in my younger days traveling the back roads of the southern Congo that I first met Joanne and Will Menzies, two former members of the Peace Corps who decided that Uncle Sam didn’t have anything more to offer and just decided to make their own way. Though it would be their son Holt who would ultimately captivate this old writer. Joanne loving as she might be, let young Holt wander into a township. He returned that evening with three deep cuts on his left shoulder (he never did say what they came from), those scars would unite us again some 13 years later.
When he was 8 his parents were killed by rebels, Holt was taken captive his only possessions a 35mm Pentax camera and a 55mm lens. The photos he took in the intervening years were breathtaking if not depressing beyond measure. In a market in Kinshasa I spied a young man with a camera draped from his neck and three scars on his left shoulder. I asked for his name but it was a formality I already knew. After he and I spent several months visiting the locations across the Congo where he had lived Holt Moved to North Carolina and enrolled at Appalachian State University and joined th Psychology department. He hopes to continue his work as a documentary photographer outside of college.”

Hi, my name is Drew, born and raised in Winston-Salem, NC. I am currently a student at Appalachian State University majoring in Technical Photography with a minor in Media Studies and Internet Studies. I snowboard during the winter and that was one of the major reasons for me attending Appalachian. I also love to camp, kayak and hike during the warmer months.
