    A Call to Vision: A Jesuit’s Perspective on the World—Photography by Don Doll, S.J.
    Artist Lecture and Opening Reception, Thursday, Feb. 13

    Vachon 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. Doll will give a lecture from 6 to 7 p.m. at Bannan Auditorium (102). The opening reception will take place 7 to 9 p.m. in Vachon Gallery (FINR 208).
    A professor of journalism at Creighton University Doll has had his photographs published in National Geographic and A Day in the Life of… books over the past 50 years. Using photojournalism as a medium, he has documented the lives of many people within many cultures while continuing the work of his Jesuit calling. From working with Native American cultures in his early years to traveling to countries in South America and Asia, Doll’s photographs depict the lives of those who are typically not seen.
