"As I entered the massive above ground burial, I felt an incredible calm take over. Never in my life had I been so completely swallowed by a space. This series of photographs has come to represent a transition point – that moment where everything pauses, and you have time to breathe. I stood still for a while trying to soak in how I would begin to photograph and gain a relationship with the Recoleta Cemetery. As I looked through my viewfinder, I could not seem to frame a single shot that illustrated how it felt to be there in that moment. Instead, it was a natural transition for me to make the photograph I wanted; one that could express the internal energy and coldness."

More about Photography Alumni
MICA approaches photography as a fine art medium; more than 100 years ago we had one of the first formal programs of photographic instruction in the world. Today, our curriculum thoroughly covers all areas of still and digital photography and offers students a strong background in the technical and aesthetic applications, history, and contemporary directions of this medium.
