Photographic images enable us to see ourselves, our environs and the past as one contiguous entity. Whether it be the duration of light recorded for a fraction of a second - or three years, photographs are a tangible record of the impermanence of all that occurs and exists. The "snapshots" we make are the visual record of who we were, we are - and occasionally give us a fleeting glimpse who we might become.
With the renovation of the Art Department's facilities in the Fall of 2009, students enrolled in photography courses at Emmanuel College have an unprecedented opportunity to study and create. Coupled with small class sizes and expanded curriculum, the addition of a multi-media classroom, new and expanded darkroom facility, as well as naturally lit multi-purpose studios and equipment upgrades, Emmanuel offers photograpny students the chance to do so within a facility and department dedicated to their exploration of this fundamental visual tool.
Boston is New England's centre of learning and culture. The city's long-standing and vibrant photographic community is fuelled by the young and talented commercial and fine art photographers who have chosen to study in Boston. It is full of energy, ideas, and events.
Photography is a universal language. It is perhaps the epitome of the word ubiquitous. Whether students pursue a career in education, the arts, marketing, medicine, design, or communications, an enhanced understanding and facility of the foundations of visual communication will make their presence an asset within any professional environment.
