Jeff Dobbs


Some images from the Spring 2016 issue of Wake Forest Magazine.  I photographed Jen Anderson ('00) and Jeff Dobbs ('77) for the "Object Curiosity" story in this year's issue.  The magazine curated a collection of objects truly unique to the Wake Forest community, including the first student issued IBM Thinkpads, and vintage WFU fashion straight out of the 1970s.

Jen and Mary recall fond memories of her time at Wake Forest.

Many call Jeff the original WFU mascot, and it's clear he hasn't lost a step.

I love connecting with fellow alumni on these assignments, and I feel so privileged to stay connected to Wake with opportunities like this. Go Deacs!
