Bloomington Through the Lens
IU alum and Indianapolis-based photographer Zach Dobson pointed his camera lens at Bloomington on a couple of occasions recently as part of an Instagram takeover of the @VisitBtown account and on assignment to photograph the new Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall for us. As someone familiar with Bloomington and IU, he knew exactly where to go and what shots to take to capture the spirit of our community. As a professional photographer with a lot of experience shooting in-the-moment scenes, his photographers are beautiful. Enjoy this photographic journey of Bloomington through Zach's lens.
