Project Introduction:

The Photography Department at the Pennsylvania College of Art & Design (PCA&D), located in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA, is committed to offering instruction in all facets of photography. We believe it is vital for students to learn the fundamental craft of both digital and analog photography. Students have the freedom to purse their own artistic and intellectual objectives, where we engage and encourage their practice with strong commitments to the technological, historical and aesthetic aspects of the medium.

The increasing ubiquity of photographs in contemporary culture, with new imaging technologies, dissemination modes, and consumption practices, has rapidly reshaped the field of photography over the past two decades. We take this as evidence that we are living through an exciting and unprecedented time in the unfolding story of the medium. In this new terrain, photographic education has never been more vital.

The work presented in this exhibition represents current students, alumnae and faculty. These men and women, all members of our close-knit photographic community, have different experiences that they communicate through the eclectic use of the medium. The world is their stage, and their photographs are the performance.

College Introduction:

Founded in 1982, the Pennsylvania College of Art & Design (PCA&D), located in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA, is a private, non-profit, professional art college offering BFA degrees that enable students to pursue art as their life's work. PCA&D's learning experience teaches students adaptive thinking techniques and effective making skills that result in a deliberate and influential artistic voice. Students engage with an interactive process of concept, construction, critique, and redesign in an immersive experiential environment. Because visual, verbal, and virtual communication is increasingly valued in a global society, our curriculum emphasizes the relationships among thinking, making, and communicating. We transform our students by challenging them to cultivate expansive points-of-view and create sophisticated visual output. The ability to continue to learn and create extends beyond the college experience.
