Vachon Gallery at Seattle UniversityDepartment of Fine Art901 12th Ave, Seattle WA 98122Email206-296-2340Vachon Gallery presents a collection of photographs by Don Doll, S.J. Capturing the scenes of ordinary life from around the world, Father Doll sees through the lens as both a photographer and as a Jesuit. With a passion to find God in all things, he attempts to shed light on both the joys and the sorrows of the world.
A professor of Journalism at Creighton University Don Doll, S.J has had his photographs published in National Geographic and A Day in the Life of… books over the last 50 years. During his calling to become a Jesuit at the age of 18 in 1955, and later becoming ordained in 1968, Father Doll learned and practiced photography at the same time as his Jesuit training. From working with Native American cultures in his early years to traveling to countries in South America and Asia, Father Doll’s photographs show us the lives of those who are typically not seen. Using photojournalism as a medium, Father Doll has documented the lives of many people within many cultures while continuing the work of his Jesuit calling. His photographs encourage empathy and understanding into the people and places he has visited.
