Book Release Party: May 3, 2014, 6 to 9 p.m.

This publication presents work inspired by the short story, Cathedral, by Raymond Carver. The book was edited by Misha Kominek and contains 116 pages with images in both black and white and color and is printed with the accompanying short story by Carver, used by permission of Alfred A. Knopf, an imprint of the Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group, a division of Random House LLC.
The publication contains works by 14 photographers currently enrolled in the Hartford Art School’s International Limited Residency Master of Fine Art in Photography program at the University of Hartford. They are: Nicholas Pollack, Stefan Schein, Matthew Spencer, Josee Schryer, Robin Dalhberg, Amy Lowey, Myriam Abdelaziz, Ward Long, Drea Zlanabitnig, Arseni Khamzin, Ricardo Tzichinovsky, Sanne Vils Axelsen, Veroncia Melendez and Matthew Casteel. All artists will be present at this event.
The Hartford Art School's MFA in photography is unique in that it is an international program, and it is the only low-residency MFA in the country focusing solely on photography. This program is designed for both mature individuals with established experience in the field as well as recent graduates who wish to further their own practice and acquire an MFA degree in order to facilitate their professional credentials as artists and educators.
Our approach offers a “blended learning model” — research, independent study, and online critiques — with on-site classroom learning. The program couples intensive on-campus sessions during the summer with a travel component in the spring and fall. The three summer sessions meet at the University of Hartford for two weeks, during which students and faculty interact inside and outside the classroom. The fall and spring sessions meet at off-site locations (New York City, San Francisco, Berlin, and other sites) for seven to 10 days. In the time between classroom sessions, students complete course assignments and maintain regular contact with their Thesis Advisor. The total time to the MFA is 25 months, of which only 10 to 12 weeks are spent away from your studio.
