"Photography for me is a form of expression, I'm really interested in composition, and working with collage and exhibition styles. I just love making art."

Featuring the voices of PCA&D students and faculty, the video spotlights PCA&D's photography program where vision – design sophistication and the ability to see photographically – is of primary importance, regardless of its application. Students discover how craft and vision are inextricably bound, and develop strong visual skills and knowledge of traditional, digital and experimental photographic processes and video.
