"Reflections" is an over-sized coffee-table book that portrays the proud history, athletics, distinguished academics and a diverse UI student body through a variety of images, including the Hawkeye gameday experience, campus life, and architectural shots.
Sjolund began photography for the book in summer 2007 and was to be completed by spring 2008. After the Iowa River flooding in June, a special chapter was included to commemorate the university's response to the disaster.
Sjolund, professor emeritus of biological sciences at UI, had been intrigued by photography since he was a boy, and it played an important role in his research at the university. As a professor, he taught digital photography at the university until his retirement in 2000, when he opened a professional photography studio.
