The graduate Photography program at ISU stresses the creative and expressive use of the medium, and the
advancement of technical knowledge and skills to encourage students toward their own visual identity. The
photography area, located in Fairbanks Hall, occupies 2,500 square feet plus assigned private or semi-private
studios. A professional black and white darkroom is furnished with a full range of equipment that will
accommodate various photographic formats. Color darkrooms, a shooting studio and facilities for alternative
processes such as digital photography are also available. The Photography program is close to the Painting,
Drawing, and Printmaking studios, providing students with the exposure and encouragement to broaden the base of
their personal photographic investigations.
