We traveled to Australia to chronicle the work of a staircase builder, and brought you the story of a student who made her way to Northeastern from Bangladesh. We delved into the problem of how to measure pain, and showcased the many visual pleasures provided by fall foliage. We got networked for life with family and friends, and founded the Institute of Experiential Artificial Intelligence. This and much more, all through the lenses of university photographers Matthew Modoono and Ruby Wallau.
