The concept for this project originated from the acceptance of Dr. Kathryn Stam's proposed photos essay idea of Bhutanese-Nepali refugees in Utica, NY to the journal Himalaya (http://digitalcommons.macalester.edu/himalaya). The Snapshots of Resettlement project is an extension of the concepts in the Refugees Starting Over in Utica, NY website (http://www.startingoverutica.com) but has been implemented such that it is an independent entity. This paper will explore the technology platforms used to create the Snapshots of Resettlement online photo gallery. It will also provide an overview of design and implementation decisions made through the duration of this project. In addition, this paper will offer details on select information design principles used in this project’s implementation.
