Developing an understanding of various conceptual approaches to the medium.


The Photography program at SUNY New Paltz engages its students in critical discourse to develop their artistic vision and conceptual and technical foundation in a vibrant environment. We foster deep and inquisitive creative research as the basis of a personal and precise visual language. As a result, students are empowered to position themselves through their photographic practice as agents of innovation within a continually shifting cultural environment.

Students have the opportunity to study advanced techniques in digital imaging and printing, black & white darkroom processes, large-format view camera photography, video, and studio lighting in our state-of-the-art facilities.
