|Description:||Approached as a fine-art medium within contemporary art practice, the Photography program emphasizes the development of your artistic vision, encouraging you to explore a broad range of issues and styles. You are introduced to contemporary and historical photographic practices and technical aspects, such as camera, darkroom and digital techniques. As you progress, you develop your conceptual abilities to create dynamic forms of expression. Students are encouraged to select electives in Fabrication Studios, Sculpture/Installation, Integrated Media, Criticism & Curatorial Practices, Printmaking as well as Drawing & Painting in order to pursue the ideas and skills that complement their use of the photographic medium. At the upper-year levels, you have opportunities to gain real-world experience through a placement in the arts community or through an exhibition of your photographs. In the fourth-year thesis program, you produce a major body of work supported by a research paper. Photography graduates: exhibit their work in artist-run and commercial galleries, work for magazines, print publications or image archives, and find employment as art curators and gallery administrators.|
