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.
