Former UND exec plans to publish book project
When Dave Vorland retired in 2005 from the University of North Dakota after more than three decades as faculty member, director of public relations and executive assistant to the president, he said he hoped to stay busy professionally on a part-time basis. Since then, he has worked as a part-time freelance photographer, writer and consultant.
The UND and Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism graduate’s latest venture is a book project, “Paris in Monchrome,” which he currently is editing.
“It consists of pictures I’ve taken over a period of nearly 20 years (in Paris), originally in color, at first on film and then digitally, and now converted to black and white. I am shooting for a late spring release of the book (it’s self-published),” said Vorland, who now lives in Bloomington, Minn.
Many of the prints will be on exhibit at the Dakota Harvest Gallery in downtown Grand Forks during August. Vorland will be there in person Aug. 16 for one of the “Art Walk” events.
