Tyburski, Elizabeth Jeanne

This Senior Individualized Project explores identity of student-athletes at Kalamazoo College through a series of photographs. How does being a student-athlete influence one’s identity? Does it change how one sees the world, or how the world sees someone? Fourteen athletes were individually interviewed and photographed in the photography studio in the Fine Arts Building at Kalamazoo College. Some of the interview topics included: where their passion for sports stemmed from, how sports have influenced them throughout their life, how their identity as a student-athlete has affected their time at Kalamazoo College, the positives and negatives of playing sports at the collegiate level, and why they continue to play. The final presentation consisted of fourteen 11 x 17 photographs on 13 x 19 pearl paper hung linearly. There was one photograph per interviewee, and each print was labeled with the name of the athlete.
