Intern Spotlight: Kendra Ward

At Light Work, we appreciate the amazing energy and hard work of our interns and work-study students. From projects in the lab to the installations of our exhibitions, they truly help to make all that we do possible. We thought it would be nice to introduce some of our recent interns in a series of posts here on our blog.

Today, we’re happy to introduce you to Kendra Ward!

What was the first photograph you remember taking?

The first photographs I remember taking seriously were of my family. One of my favorites was a black and white photo of my aunt smoking a cigarette on Thanksgiving 2007.

What is your favorite smell?

Flour or fresh baked bread.

What are you listening to right now?

If I’m editing, I pretty much exclusively listen to podcasts. Right now I’ve been catching up on Once Upon a Crime and Myths and Legends. When I’m shooting I usually listen to the lofi hip hop radio – beats to relax/study to.

What do you like about Light Work?

I can’t say enough good things about Light Work. It’s really inspiring to be around artists who help other artists. The entire staff is incredibly supportive, and I can easily say that my work would not be where it is today without their assistance. It’s such a privilege to be around, and get to know the artists in residence. Assisting them has taught me so much and has been an amazing experience that I wouldn’t have if it weren’t for Light Work.
