Professor Robert Heller leads students on 25th Eyes on LaFollette workshop
This year marks the 25th anniversary of Eyes on LaFollette. Helmed by Professor Robert Heller, what began as a brief excursion for photojournalism students in the School of Journalism and Electronic Media has since become a monumental documentary effort, with more than 100,000 photographs cataloging both change and tradition in the quiet East Tennessee town.
Eyes takes students more than an hour away from campus to LaFollette, allowing them to spend a weekend working as real photojournalists – chasing stories, interviewing locals, and using the photography skills they have learned in the semester leading up to their trip.
