The Tyler School of Art is embarking on a major re-design of its admissions viewbooks, the publications used by prospective students searching for the right college, and this time the school will experiment with a new source for photography: Tyler students.
Starting after Spring Break, Tyler is asking all of its students, undergraduate and graduate, to share their best images of the Tyler experience, including scenes of the creative process, classrooms and studios, student life, student-teacher interactions, exhibitions and installations, museum and gallery visits, critiques, research in the field, facilities, social events, technology, spontaneous gatherings and more.
“The people who really understand what’s great about Tyler are our students, and we can’t think of anyone with could do a better job of capturing that with the authenticity and the skill that we need,” said Tyler staff member Olivia Menta, BFA ’14, who is managing the viewbook project.

Professor Byron Wolfe's most recent book Phantom Skies and Shifting Ground: Landscape, Culture, and Rephotography of Eadweard Muybridge's Illustrations of Central America has just been released. Phantom Skies is a collaborative research project and publication (print and online) that responds to the largely unknown 19th-century photographs of Central America by Eadweard Muybridge. The photographs are significant as a benchmark for one of the largest and earliest bodies of photographic representation in Central America. The sometimes dark and moody pictures were taken during a two-year expedition immediately following Muybridge's involvement in a scandalous murder trial.

Jonathon Wells is a geologist who made a mid-career detour to become an artist (and now he has two careers). He makes photo-geologic composites that are part map, part photograph, part visualization of a world that’s normally inaccessible and wholly invisible. I find them fascinating in and of themselves, but they also serve as a starting point for an investigation into what’s happening in the world of energy extraction and fracking.
