Terra is a Master’s Thesis project by KC McGinnis, in completion of his Master of Arts in Journalism & Mass Communication at The University of Iowa. The project accompanies McGinnis’ research study, BODY-CENTERED CONSTRUCTIVISM AND LIVED IN RELIGION IN PHOTOJOURNALISM: VISUAL ANALYSES AND A CREATIVE CASE STUDY, which included interviews with photographers and visual analyses of depictions of religion in visual journalism. The project was an attempt to observe how various photographic techniques and media would affect a photographer’s approach to a story with a religious theme.

McGinnis is a member of the National Press Photographers Association and the Religion Newswriters Association.
