Students in Photography have opportunities to work with a variety of media and approaches, including traditional wet-lab and digital lab processes, medium and large format photography, hand-applied emulsions and a variety of other alternative methods. Lectures on the historical and contemporary uses of the medium enrich students’ understanding of the potential for individual expression in photography.
