"You can have a theme or tell a story just through pictures if you have the right pictures," says Lynn Reinschmiedt.
For more than 30 years, the associate dean and professor in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences has been telling stories through his photographs, to the point that more than 285 of his "stories" cover the walls in his office at the Bost Extension Center.
"In some ways, this is a history, or at least a history of my part of MSU—people I was affiliated with and that sort of thing," Reinschmiedt said.
The photos walk through the years not only in subject matter, but also in the media format of the photos themselves. There are instamatics taken before the mid-70s all the way to current photos taken with state-of-the-art digital cameras.
"A lot of people will come in here, and particularly people who've been around for a long time, like faculty, and they'll look at these and they kind of get engrossed in them. They'll look at somebody and they didn't realize what they looked like 25 years ago."
