My Ateneo Citation

Photography is the poetry of the eye: The futile quest of capturing what we see and what we feel for what passes for eternity. It is a lonely and often misunderstood art, where the quick flick of the button and setting of the lights passes for the romance and tragedy of perspective and composition.
It is however a lost art that has flourished quietly in the Ateneo, thanks in part to THE GUIDON’s own eye for the heart-catching and the eye-warming. Jennifer Caspe is one in a line of lonely shutter-masters who have taken it upon themselves to propagate the love of the lens. As a solo hobbyist, as Photo editor, as professional, she has produced photographs which capture the action, the sadness, the joys of being Atenean. She is the visual chronicler of her Atenean generation, and has gone on to snap images of the Pope, Russia, Oxford in full bloom.
Jennifer Caspe combines journalism and art in a single shape and a variety of shades with her photographic work over the past few years. The distance from her lens to her eyes is the same distance from her photographs to our hearts. For her gift of bridging that timeless distance again and again, we are most proud to confer on Jennifer Y. Caspe the first Dean’s Award for Photography.

  3. Wow! A La Sallian visited my site, and a missionary at that! What an honor! 😀 Maraming salamat po!
    You remind me of my devotion today-2 Tim 4:2, “Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage–with great patience and careful instruction.” May you reach more souls (whether La Sallians or Ateneans, Pinoy o Kano) for Jesus!
