Welcome to the MICA Photography Department
I am very excited and proud to announce that Strange Fire Collective is LIVE! My colleagues Jess T. Dugan, Zora J Murff, Hamidah Glasgow and I have been working hard for the past few months to get this project off the ground. We will be presenting interviews, shows, and publications featuring women, people of color, and queer and trans artists, writers and curators. We will be bringing you a new interview every Thursday!

This week features a conversation with emerging artist D’Angelo Lovell Williams, followed by interviews with (MICA Photo alum) Elle Perez, Ervin Alex Johnson, and Kris Graves throughout October.
Oakland University is launching an international undergraduate magazine, “The Oakland Arts Review”, in Winter 2016. Their intent is for this to be a long term print magazine of excellent quality. The Oakland Arts Review is actively looking for exceptional artwork (photographs), graphic narratives, and screenplays to publish alongside a variety of other literary genres. Students interested in this opportunity may submit work to: www.oar.submittable.com.
There is no deadline for submissions, but we hope to make final selections for the inaugural issue by December. One of their goals is to showcase artists from our program in their first, and forthcoming, issues. This is a great opportunity for you to get your work published, and to begin to build that resumé!
MICA Photo alum, Jolie Kumin, contacted us with a job opportunity for interested photo students/alumni. Below you will find the details about applying for a position at “Pixilated Photo Booth”, DC/Baltimore/Philly’s premier open air photo booth company.
We are happy to announce that MICA Photo Faculty member, Nate Larson, has just published a book titled “Geolocation” in collaboration with Marni Shindelman through Flash Powder Projects. Congratulations to Nate & Marni for this launch of their new project.
Flash Powder Publishing works collaboratively and in partnership with artists to create truly beautiful books in small, exclusive editions.
Geolocation by Nate Larson and Marni Shindelman, is now available for pre-order.
Larson and Shindelman use publicly available embedded GPS information in Twitter updates to track the locations of user posts and make photographs to mark the location in the real world. Geolocation features 78 color images and writings by eight experts from both the art world and the twittersphere. It is the culmination of six years of image-making and butt-kicking.
There are also three different special editions (each comes with a print) and a collector folio available for purchase. There are only a few folios left for sale, so take a look and act quickly!
The MICA Photo Department will be changing the open hours on Sundays for a short time. Starting this coming Sunday, October 11, the Photo Department will be open to students from 3PM – 10:30PM . Please make a note of this schedule change. We regret any incovenience, and we will restore the morning hours as soon as possible. We appreciate your understanding through this (temporary) schedule adjustment.
