Technically and impressively skilled, Krain currently works as the university’s photographer and has been a working photojournalist, he said, for more than 20 years.

“The more challenging photographs are those of  everyday life,” Krain said describing the exhibit. The simple exploration of nothing. The  moments in-between the moments. I find these unplanned  encounters the most interesting. The content is not about  the news. It is about the human spirit. These are the photographs in this exhibit. They can be  taken by anyone. There is no special access or credential  required other than just being present. (Although a few  may have needed a plane ticket to get there or an event  ticket to get in), they are still accessible to anyone with a  camera and desire to explore.”
