Photography program


“I wasn’t going to go to college until my friend told me about this college. His experience here changed my perception about what it meant to go to college. He talked about being surrounded by people who cared about what he cared about. I wanted that same experience.” Julian Noj, Photography, Class of 2020

The Teti Fellowship

The Teti Fellows program awards four to six fellowships annually to scholars, artists, writers and educators wishing to travel to our campus in Manchester, New Hampshire to make use of the John Teti Rare Photography Book Collection housed in the college’s Teti Library.

The John Teti Rare Photography Book Collection is one of the finest collections of photographic resources in the United States. The Collection, established in 2007 through a generous donation by Mr. John Teti, contains over 2,000 rare books, periodicals, prints and documents illustrating the history of photography, including Edward Steichen’s personal copies of Alfred Stieglitz’s Camera Work.
