Since May I’ve been working as an intern in Purdue’s Media and Marketing division as a photographer and I was given the opportunity to take photos in the now defunct North Power Plant on Purdue’s campus. This fall the power plant will be demolished for a new Active Learning Center. The North Power Plant was built in 1924 and for years the signature smokestack was the highest point on campus and a recognizable landmark. The power plant was retired in 1991 after a new boiler was added to Wade Utility Plant at the southern edge of campus. The smokestack was demolished in 1992.

The D-Day invasion opened up the long-awaited Second Front against Hitler. According to the D-Day Museum, over 425,000 Allied and German troops were killed, wounded or went missing during the invasion.
