Jonathan Bachman ’03: A Louisiana-based freelance photographer whose images for Reuters after the police killing of Alton Sterling are being called “iconic” and “impossible to forget.” His photos have dominated the news cycle the past several months. (See more of his photos here.) The photo above (top) is also featured in the Black Eyed Peas’ music video for their song, “Where’s the Love.” The song — a new rendition of their 2003 hit — features a variety of top music industry artists and is aimed at ending gun violence. Proceeds of the charity single will go to educational programs and college scholarships in the United States.

Trina Chiasson ’03: Senior product manager at Tableau Software, which recently launched Vizable, an app for visual data analysis using animation and touchscreen gestures and visualization that helps people ask and answer questions. (Side note: I haven’t downloaded it yet, but Vizable looks slick. The touchable, interactive graphs are much more polished than your standard Excel bar chart. Plus, it’s free!) Chiasson is also CEO and co-founder of the start-up Infoactive (acquired by Tableau last year) and has written a global open-source e-book, Data + Design.
