As university photographer, he’s the guy who shows up with his camera to document UofL events as different as a groundbreaking surgical procedure and an annual beauty pageant; Greek fundraiser and presidential outreach tour.

Many of Fougerousse’s photos end up on UofL Today or in university publications – but not all do.
