La Grande, OR, United States
At the Photography program at Eastern Oregon University, students in photography learn to break the mold of the arms-length Facebook self-portrait and explore photography as a medium for meaningful expression. 

Overview

Using traditional black and white darkroom techniques, students are immersed in the oldest aspects of the medium.

Program Overview

Taking digital and studio photography allows students to explore manipulation through computers and light, respectively. The commercial and artistic elements of the spectrum of photography are stressed every step of the way.

Understanding photography also requires studying the artists of the past that brought the medium to where it is today. From the earliest work by Daguerre, through the modernists and Edward Weston, to the works of the Starn Brothers and Sally Mann, students in the Photography program at Eastern Oregon University research photographs obscure and famous, horrifying and beautiful, gaining an understanding of history, art, and photography’s truths and lies.
