Frozen in time: Loyola celebrates centennial with historic photo display

March 23, 2012

A photographic trip through the last century, as seen through the eyes of Loyola University New Orleans, will be on display as the university presents “Loyola’s Photographic Treasures with University Photographer Harold Baquet.” The retrospective and lecture are part of Loyola’s centennial celebration and takes place Wednesday, April 11 at 7 p.m. at Nunemaker Auditorium in Monroe Hall. The event is free and open to the public, with free parking available at the West Road Garage.

Baquet, who has been the university photographer since 1989, sifted through thousands of images over the last several months and selected pictures that not only chronicled Loyola over the last 100 years, but also captured some of the more compelling moments in the school’s history. According to Baquet, every photo has a story behind it.

“It’s an opportunity to make a photographic connection with Loyola’s past,” Baquet said. “Though many physical changes have occurred over our long history, I’m certain our students will come to identify with the unchanged spirit of our Ignatian traditions. We’ll show how photography is used to illustrate our mission statement.”

The exhibit and lecture are presented by Loyola’s Center for Intercultural Understanding, in conjunction with the Center for the Study of New Orleans.
