Visit the Photography Department

At its heart photography is about making images – finding, freezing, manipulating, and perfecting them into compelling visual statements.

Our curriculum covers everything from basic techniques and the fundamentals of design, to sophisticated technical concerns and criticism. Our facilities – digital imaging stations, scanning equipment, printers – are the most extensive and advanced in the Midwest and our faculty members – including eight Guggenheim Award winners – are working photographers who exhibit throughout the city and around the world.

Our program will teach you technical competence, sure, but we believe that it’s in the development of your individual artistic process that you will acquire the skills and sharpen the instincts that will last you a lifetime and truly form the foundation of an enduring career.
