Anna Letson, Senior Multimedia Editor

Anna Letson is the Multimedia Editor at the Washington Square News. She is a junior in Gallatin and finally ready for you to ask her about her concentration. She loves all sorts of photography, but has a soft spot for analog, and not because it's hipster (though hailing from Seattle could have something to do with it). After being in Paris in last spring and now studying abroad in Sydney this spring, she has become even more dependent on caffeine and the company of other people's dogs. You can find her at a number of concerts and cafes around the city or convincing someone to go to brunch. If you can't find her, she's probably in the darkroom. Keep up with her at www.annaletson.com and on ig @annaletson.
