Photo Challenge: Broken

As a way to help our CU Independent photographers develop their skills and expand their creative approaches to photography, the student news outlet’s visuals editors have formed an assignment that is both fun and challenging. Each week, staff photojournalist are randomly given a topic or concept and it is then up to them to get a unique photo that represents that topic.

This is meant to be a challenge. The photographers can interpret the theme any way they wish as long as the photo relates to the topic. We challenge them to think outside the box, make viewers contemplate the topic and to get a photo no one could think of.

Each week, every photographer presents one photo. This week they photographed “broken.”
