Photographers play an influential role in society as observers and commentators, image-makers, and artists. At every stage of the program, a broad range of aesthetic and technical information strengthens student control of the medium and builds confidence and self-reliance.
At the Institute, students begin with an exploration of the unique vocabulary of photography and work toward personal means of communicating their visions as professional photographers.
The Photography program encourages exploration of visual direction while teaching the skills of photographic seeing, production, and presentation. The curriculum nurtures a personal capacity for distinctive visual expression and a broad understanding of the role photography plays in contemporary culture.
