Photography

Photographic images are central in our culture. The presence and impact of photography is evident in contemporary art practice, as can be seen by the quality and volume of photography exhibited in galleries and museums, as well as in new web-based art forums. The level of technical and conceptual sophistication in the photography and digital imaging programs at Tyler exposes the student to many career opportunities.

    Vincent Feldman

    Vincent Felman headshot

    Vincent Feldman has photographed architecture and the urban landscape for nearly three decades.   After receiving his B. A. from George Washington University in 1989, he spent several months visiting youth squatter communities throughout Europe.  These autonomous movements have been redeveloping abandon government, military and industrial sites across Europe since the 1960’s.   These examples of urban historic preservation and culture building executed with little or no funds left a lasting impression on Feldman.    When he returned to Philadelphia in 1991 his experiences in Europe began to help magnify and focus his insights on architectural subject matter, particularly the myriad issues that can confront historic buildings.   The symbols, patina of time and the particulars of design and adaptations, in both public and private architecture, represent some of the motifs found in Feldman’s body of work.
