I initially had the idea for this blog while I was debating whether or not to apply to various MFA photography programs. I very quickly became aware of the lack of information available online about the MFA process. Who should apply? Why would you want an MFA? What differentiates one school’s program from another? I was fortunate enough to be able to talk to gallery owners, professors and photographers I had become friends with while working as a photographer. Even with the resources I had access to, I still found the process confusing.
This blog will document my two years at the School of Visual Arts in the Photography, Video & Related Media MFA program. In addition to my experiences in the program, there will be interviews with peers at other schools, professors, gallery owners and working photographers. There will be links to exhibits and work I admire (or don’t…).
In two years, I will hopefully graduate with an MFA and this blog will exist as a resource for those considering graduate school.
