About

SFAI approaches photography as a visual and conceptual tool, a way to construct narrative, and a means to document the world.

Overview

SFAI is home to the first “fine art” photography program in the country, founded by Ansel Adams in 1946. Historical and critical knowledge of photography is brought to bear on contemporary practice, and students are encouraged to utilize technique in the service of their concepts. Issues of installation, scale, materials, presentation, and audience interaction are rigorously considered and questioned. As technology continues to change, Photography at SFAI continues to expand and evolve while still being attentive to traditional, analogue approaches.

The Photography curriculum prepares students to bring a critical understanding to a society that is saturated with cameras and photographic images, and to envision what they—as artists—have to offer such a world.
