Photography provides us with a means to explore the world and our existence within it.

The emphasis on photographic studies at Marlboro was fine art in nature, although photography is ideally suited for interdisciplinary work in all fields of study. The course structure emphasized the study of the medium as a form of personal vision and visual communication. The courses accommodated individual needs and interests and were technically, critically, and historically relevant to contemporary culture. Students explored seeing artistically, the production of imagery, and the possibilities for presentation most appropriate to content. Courses throughout the liberal arts tradition assisted students in exploration and development of personal vision. The faculty were always interested in photography’s relationship to other areas of study through its various genres, techniques, and theoretical approaches.
