Photojournalist Corey J. Schjoth of Wausau will display the beauty and power of black and white photography in a new show opening at Lakeland College's Bradley Gallery on Friday, Nov. 4.

The exhibit of Schjoth's work runs through Dec. 9. The Bradley Gallery is open from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday, closed on school holidays and vacations.
Schjoth, currently a staff photographer for the Wausau Daily Herald and a photojournalist for over 15 years, will display various shots from his career.
"I'm very passionate about photography and the power the image has to move the viewer," Schjoth said. "I'm continually amazed how even in this modern area that the still image has not lost any of is strength and humanity. This is what I try to get across with the images I make. I hope that the viewer walks away still thinking about what I was trying to tell, or feel what I was trying to convey."
Schjoth has worked at newspapers in several Illinois communities including Galesburg, Sterling, Geneva, Sycamore and Dekalb. He also is currently a freelancer photographer for the Associated Press' Chicago office, shooting special assignments as well as spot news and feature news stories.
