Montclair State University students fanned out across New Jersey over several days to capture images of the 2020 election.
The students, who are in Professor Thomas E. Franklin’s photojournalism class at the School of Communication and Media, had as their assignment to visually report events related to the election and to publish a selection of their work on Instagram.
This is a sampling of their photographs as published in
NJ Spotlight. You can see much more on Instagram, under the hashtag #scm_photojournalism2020.
