What is life really like at Williams? The question comes up often, in a variety of settings, from campus tours with prospective students to gatherings with far-flung alumni. One answer—many answers, really—can be seen in a new photography project initiated by the college. The photographs, which appear in print and online and are described in a style akin to social media hashtags, were taken during the fall and winter by acclaimed photographer Josephine Sittenfeld. They’re candid, authentic and real—just like Williams. See more on Instagram at @williamsadmission and #williamsunfiltered.
