Welcome to the MICA Photography Department
Join us in Main 010 on Thursday, October 19th, at 11am as we welcome Jason Reblando. The artist will discuss his new book, New Deal Utopias and will also have copies of the book for sale! From his website: “New Deal Utopias explores one of the most ambitious but overlooked federal programs in American history. During the Great Depression, the U.S. government constructed three planned communities – Greenbelt, Maryland; Greenhills, Ohio; and Greendale, Wisconsin — to resettle displaced farmers and poor urban dwellers. These “Greenbelt Towns” embodied the hope that American citizens would meet the challenges of the Great Depression in a spirit of cooperation, not individualism. The planners from the Resettlement Administration hoped it would not only transform the people who resided in these new communities, but also hoped to remake the landscape of American cities, as inspired by Sir Ebenezer Howard’s “Garden City” principles. Howard, a British urban reformer in the late 19th century, envisioned cities where nature would be part of everyday life, and residents would have the social and economic advantages of living in a community with each other.” http://www.jasonreblando.com/New-Deal-Utopias-1
This internship is an opportunity to learn more about the world of photo editing. Our goal isn’t to make you into a photo editor; we view this internship as a chance for you to understand what it is like to be an editor and improve your visual literacy, which can help you become a better photographer.
The paid internship runs from January 8, 2018 to April 20, 2018. Application deadline extended! Applications are due Sunday, October 15th at 11:59pm eastern.
You will be part of NPR’s intern program, which includes 40-50 interns each semester, across different departments. There will be coordinated training and intern-focused programming throughout the semester, which includes meeting NPR radio hosts, career development and other opportunities. As an intern, you will be treated as a member of the team. Many NPR employees are former interns and they’re always willing to help current interns.
Any student (undergraduate or graduate), or person who has graduated no more than 12 months prior to the start of the internship period to which he/she is applying is eligible. Interns must be authorized to work in the United States.
We’re looking for candidates that have a strong photojournalism background. An interest in editing, or experience with video/photo editing is a nice plus. It’s also helpful if you’ve completed at least one photojournalism-focused internship prior to applying (let us know if you have!), though it’s not necessary. A portfolio, however, is required.
We also want folks who can tell us what they would like to accomplish during their time at NPR. What do you want to learn? What do you want to try? We try to shape each internship around our intern, so we rely on you to tell us what goals you have for your time with us!

Come get your hands on our new Fujifilm GFX 50S medium format digital camera. The info session will last approximately 30 minutes with time for Q&A.
MICA photo students must participate in a training session to gain access to this camera. If you are unable to attend our brief meeting session, you will have to schedule an individual session with Jefferson and/or Sara.
“Characterized by its large sensor, advanced imaging capabilities, and modular design, the GFX 50S from Fujifilm is a unique medium format mirrorless camera that is highly versatile and distinctly portable. At the heart of the GFX camera system is the 43.8 x 32.9mm 51.4MP CMOS sensor, which pairs with the X-Processor Pro image processor to produce files with extremely wide dynamic range and high resolution, as well as an extended sensitivity range of ISO 50-102400 for working in difficult lighting conditions. The sensor’s large form factor also achieves a unique three-dimensional look with especially smooth tonal and color transitions. Beyond this, the sensor and processor combination also avails the ability to work in a variety of aspect ratios common to traditional large and medium format film cameras, as well as the ability to shoot at up to 3 fps or record Full HD 1080p/30 video. As forward-thinking as the GFX 50S is, its use of film-camera inspired design imbues it with intuitive operation and the ability to apply the camera system to myriad styles and methods of image-making.” ~ From B&H website
