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.

    Gabriel Martinez, a Cuban-American native of Miami, Florida, works largely with photography, performance and installation. Martinez started out exclusively working in photography and gradually ventured into a more interdisciplinary/multidisciplinary mode and tends to be attracted to the potential & power of performance-oriented, site-specific installation.
