    In Profile: Aaron Ricketts (BFA '17)

    Author: Emily Herbein

    Since graduating from Tyler with a BFA in Photography in 2017, Aaron Ricketts has risen as a high-profile Philadelphia creative with an arresting, surrealist-inspired style. His work explores every day themes, typically through portraiture, paired against a backdrop of stunning digital manipulation and striking detail. He has traveled a circuitous path that led from high school to a year in college to ordinary jobs to the Air Force and back to college again.  Along the way, he swapped his interest in photography for studying graphic design (his first college did not have a photography program) but eventually found his way back to his first love — learning the fundamentals of photography over two years at a community college and then transferring to Tyler to earn a bachelor’s degree.  Read More

    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. Guided by Muybridge's sophisticated but problematic combination prints that merge multiple negatives into seamless views, photographer Byron Wolfe and cultural geographer Dr. Read More
