The Diamondback’s photo desk works with many members of other desks to coordinate and photograph news for the College Park community. Our goal is to accurately depict the stories the photos accompany.
2022 was definitely a year of growth and progress as people shifted towards a sense of normalcy after COVID-19 severely impacted the previous two years. Highly anticipated in-person performances, games, and concerts finally took place. Rallies and marches demanded change for ever-present issues. As students of the University of Maryland, we want to share our pride in being a part of this community.
Cam and I stepped into this unfamiliar position for the first time early this year, and we definitely hit a bit of a learning curve. We continue to learn as we go, and continue to try to best represent The Diamondback and the University of Maryland as a whole.
We are immensely proud of all our staff photographers, many of whom were new members to the photo desk this year. One of our main goals was to encourage all of our staff photographers to strive to find their own styles of sharing the story through their photos. We have seen tremendous growth in each person’s photography, and we look forward to seeing what they capture next.
We are honored to present our edition and continuation of The Diamondback’s Year in Pictures.
