UNM senior wide receiver Dameon Gamblin started to play football when he was younger, following in his brother’s footsteps.
“When I was 4 years old, my mom threw me in flag football and it has kind of snowballed since then,” Gamblin said.
Gamblin is from Mesquite, Texas. When he first got to New Mexico, he noticed there were a lot of rocks and dirt.
“When I first got here, nobody understood what I was saying,” he said. “I guess I am from the south and I have a thick accent. That’s what everyone kept telling me, and I kept having to repeat myself.”
He thinks people around New Mexico are nice and friendly. He also said he enjoys the New Mexico sunsets.
His typical day during football season starts at 6 a.m. He spends most of his day at school and in practice. When he has free time, he likes to spend it with his girlfriend, Johanna Kapanui.

For my photo essay, I decided to photograph the UNM campus through not only my camera lens, but also my phone. The main purpose of this photo series was, instead of going through the motions of daily student life myself, to observe my surrounding and see what other people are experiencing. Throughout my series there are many active people around the University, and as a transfer student, I wanted to experience and capture these moments.
These moments were not planned, as I let the subjects in the photos go about their daily lives while I captured the moments. This series will continue on Instagram under the hashtag “#BetweenClassesU.” I hope others will join in and capture these rare moments around the University of New Mexico and post their photos as well.
