The View

Ousman Diallo ’12 loves photographing people in their surroundings. Inspired by the Humans of New York project, Diallo set out to showcase the diversity of people on the SU campus by creating the Humans of SU Facebook page, which has attracted more than 3,500 likes since its launch last November. Diallo’s photography skills got a boost when he studied in Florence, Italy, under professional photographer Andrea Calabresi. He enjoyed the experience so much that he returned to Italy after graduation to study the art, craft, and history of photography. In his absence, he recruited Chris Becker ‘13, Shelby Jacobs ‘14, and Mike Choi ‘13 to continue adding images to the Humans of SU page. Now back in Syracuse, Diallo is working on a master’s degree in photography at Newhouse—and posting new pictures.
