In Photographic Workshop students synthesize technical, formal, and conceptual knowledge acquired over a four year course of study to produce a unified portfolio of images.
Images from in and around Florence the past location of the Cinema and Photography Department's summer course in central Italy. This year, the program will be based in Rome.
Images from the Department's course Cross-Cultural Documentary Research and Production in South Korea, conducted during the summer of 2006.
Introduction to Photography is a beginning level course stressing technical and critical photographic skills. The class develops one's capacity to produce well wrought, effectively structured pictures. Additionally, students broaden their abilities to look at images critically so that they are better able to evaluate and, ultimately, value the success of their work and the work of others. Introduction to photography is a basic requirement for students who intend to pursue photography as a major, and serves as a survey for those who choose to take the course as an elective.
Located off the lobby of Park Hall, the Entry Gallery showcases photographic work by Ithaca College students and guest artists from around the country. Images may be viewed during normal building hours.

Relics from the Garden—Photo Collages by Kathleen Campbell
In our minds, time and space exist in fragments of memory and fleeting experience. Yet photographs fix time and space, fascinating us with their ability to reconstruct detail and seducing us with their evidentiary quality. Nevertheless, photographs are also fragments, partial reflections of individual lives and the times in which they were made. In this project, I use old glass plate photographs from a stock agency from the early 20th century. These are then combined digitally, using plant forms, to create new worlds, encompassing both nature (space) and history (time). The work is a visual fiction, woven from these broken image fragments, implying both our interconnection with nature and the Edenic state into which we cast all the pieces of lost worlds.
Kathleen Campbell's photography and mixed media has been exhibited widely at such places as Soho Photo (NYC), the Philadelphia Print Center, the Schneider Gallery (Chicago), Houston Foto Fest, the Houston Center for Photography, the Asheville Art Museum (Asheville, NC), the Museum of New Mexico (Santa Fe) and the Albright-Knox Art Gallery (Buffalo, NY). Her images reside in the permanent collections of the George Eastman House, The International Museum of Photography and Film, the Museum of New Mexico, Santa Fe, the Asheville (NC) Art Museum and the Polaroid Corporation. Campbell is currently a full professor of Art at Appalachian State University in Boone, NC.
