Video: Inauguration moments

Photographer and videographer Phyllis Graber Jensen offers behind-the-scenes video moments rich in symbolism, splendor and humanity.

It’s all here, from the robing of the academic procession and the fellowship of Bates’ four presidents together, to the Spencer family gathering for a group photograph.

    Really enjoyed this – my family knew the Spencers when they were in Staunton, Virginia, and it was such a treat to see them in this video. Congratulations to Clayton!

    I watched as Phyllis Graber Jensen worked her way through the day of inauguration with her cameras and with her marvelous photographer’s perception that captured so much of the emotional content of a historic and happy day. She is so quiet in her work, and her presence is so soft, that the honest and unvarnished behavior of the participants was captured in a beautiful and natural manner. This video was put together with love and wisdom about our college and its community.

    Thank you Phyllis.
