Sulli Wallisch '19 and the Art of Photography
The photography club captures life at SLUH throughout the year – from games and concerts to mixers and retreats – to feature in the Prep News, SLUH Magazine, website and yearbook. Most importantly, they build on a dynamic, digital archive that documents the story of SLUH for future generations.
Among the club’s talented photographers, Sulli Wallisch ‘19 was an active member throughout his four years at SLUH. His knack for putting himself in medias res (in the middle of the action) and snapping the camera at just the right time allowed viewers to relive, if vicariously, unforgettable moments through his artistry.
Wallisch earned medals of honor for his exceptional photography work, as well as his excellence in the circus club. He will be attending the honor College of Engineering at the University of Missouri in the fall.
“In my future, I hope to make an impact in the world through engineering as I design and manufacture new generations of tools and products to better society,” says Wallisch.
“Also, I hope to continue making an impact with photography. I've found photography has an amazing potential to convey emotions and a celebration of life from baptisms to the wakes that I've photographed over the years.”
We asked Wallisch to pick his 10 favorite photos he’s taken as a Jr. Bill. What he provided offers a snapshot – in living color – of the diverse spectrum of life and activity that is St. Louis U. High.
