Meg Kumin is a staff photographer at the University of Kansas.
She first fell for photography at the age of fifteen, when she spent all of high school behind the camera, and under the dim, red light of the darkroom. As a curious collector of knowledge and experiences, her career path into photography was long and circuitous. She received both a BA in American Studies and an MS in Computer Science, and she later later became a software developer at KU’s Natural History Museum.
It wasn’t until after three babies and a couple family crises, that Meg rebooted, and emerged as a professional photographer. Eventually, she returned to KU to become a university staff photographer. She spends her days documenting college life.
