As you may have seen in yesterday post, I was on a photo mission to capture the people and activities at Chicks, our university dining hall. Last night I focused mostly on the behind the scenes action and what takes place in the kitchen to provide food for thousands of kids and also what is involved in clean up. Today I want to focus more on the use and look of our dining hall. The place went under event renovations thus past summer and has maintained a really fresh and modern atmosphere for the students dining in. From the second floor of the dining hall, appropriately called “up-chucks,” you get a very interesting perspective looking down on the busy bustle of hungry college students. I focused some time up there grabbing unique angles of some of the drink stations and ice cream bar. Then I spent some time on the bottom floor following some student around documenting their process in obtaining food and sometimes cooking and mixing different ingredients to create their own unique dishes. At our dining hall there are so many base ingredients and nice big grills that can be combined to create some delicious meals. You just have to get a little creative!
