New Temple Flashback features Photo Prof Ed Trayes

Temple Flashback: Ed Trayes

In a new episode of Temple Flashback, TUTV General Manager Paul Gluck sits down with Dr. Ed Trayes, Klein College of Media & Communication’s iconic Photojournalism professor, who has worked at Temple for five decades and plans to retire at the end of the year.

Dr. Trayes was recruited as one of the original faculty of the School of Communications and Theater, as it was called then, in 1967and has since helped many generations of Temple Owls find their unique vision of life through the lenses of a camera. Trayes describes his career in both teaching and journalism, how he helped build the photography program at Klein, and his teaching philosophy.

It has recently been announced that the University will replace Annenberg Hall, and so you don’t want to miss Ed recall first entering the then-newly built Annenberg Hall, which was state-of-the-art for its time. He has kept the same office since then.

A documentary of hope in the city of Camden, NJ

Across the Bridge

Across the Bridge is a student-made documentary that follows community outreach members working in Camden, New Jersey, including a nun, a high school football coach and the police chief, as they describe what they have been working towards in the city and what they hope to see in the future.

In 1991, Sister Helen began working in Camden, New Jersey as a teacher. After helping a mother find her daughter’s murderer, Sister Helen’s plans quickly changed. From this, Sister Helen started helping more families and ended up opening Guadalupe Family Services and last year opened an after-school program for high school students.

This half-hour documentary was produced by students Abbie Lee, Ryan Leddy, Casey McKenna, Jenna Miele, and Colin Clark for Kristine Weatherston’s class. Tune in to TUTV on Saturday, August 10 at 3:30 and 11:30 p.m. and Sunday, August 11, at 7:30 a.m. to see the program in full.
