A little about the Photo & Intermedia Labs: With 15,000 square feet of space, Herron’s photography program has one of the largest footprints of the school. As a Tech Assistant, you’ll have access any time of the day or night to our specialized labs, darkrooms, computer labs, finishing areas, exhibition space, and a professional lighting studio. Moreover, Herron's Photo & Intermedia Labs serve as a supportive cultural center for image-making, and as a discursive space for colloquial concerns of representation.
