A world of possibilities
Gary Logan traveled more than 3,000 miles to Chulucanas, Peru, to report on a mission to provide care to sick children by a medical team led by Johns Hopkins emergency physician Karen Schneider (
"Gracias, Doctores"). The team saw more than 150 patients per day during the two-week trip and treated tropical diseases without many of the tools they rely upon in Baltimore. "I was surprised by how resourceful they were," says Logan, the associate director of communications and public affairs for the Johns Hopkins Children's Center. "You can't necessarily zero in on one thing. You have to think about all of the possibilities."

Warts and all
Will Kirk (A&S '99) knows Gilman Hall. As an English major, Kirk endured a multitude of classes in the 90-year-old Homewood landmark. A university staff photographer, he's also shot countless portraits of students and faculty in the Gilman vestibule and the "Hut." In photographing the shabbily genteel building this time, Kirk aimed to show some of Gilman's elegant interior details that often get overlooked. "There are so many sterile buildings on campus," Kirk says. "That's not Gilman. It really has a personality and a beauty to it." Kirk, whose work has appeared in New York Newsday and The Baltimore Sun, is the official photographer of the National Cornbread Festival, held each April in his hometown of South Pittsburg, Tenn. — Maria Blackburn
