View selections of student work from the various class levels in the Photography Program.
The Photography major at GVSU offers student-centered production and theory courses aimed at developing liberally educated image-makers able to adapt and thrive in a variety of professional and creative environments. Students engage the medium from historical, theoretical and sociological points of view in order to become thoughtful about the way images operate as cultural objects, are read by audiences, and impact the world around them.
As with any Art, the mastery of photography requires an understanding of the medium’s visual language, proficiency of technique, intellectual curiosity and personal vision, as well as dedication and practice. Students in the photography program integrate liberal and professional education, combining technique with an understanding of visual communication and ideas that emanate from an authentic sense of self. The individuality and integrity of the photographer are essential grounds for success as an artist and the self-governance requisite of any professional.
These images represent the growth of students as they complete the program, from their beginning in Photography 1 to advanced independent work culminating in the Senior Thesis images and paper.
