Please join Image Text Ithaca in NYC at Printed Matter on Friday, November 30 at 6pm for a reading and discussion by ITI faculty Lucy Ives and Matthew Connors and with ITI students and alumni, Martha Ormiston, Andre Bradley, and Grant Willing. The event features their work and the launch of the ITI 2018 Thesis Sampler, a collection of excerpts from the first graduating class of the Image Text MFA, a low residency MFA at the intersection of photography and writing out of Ithaca College in Ithaca, NY.

ITI MFA
The faculty and fellows for the summer 2019 session of the Image Text MFA include Lucas Blalock, Stephanie Barber, Paul Soulellis, Tonya Foster, Drew Sawyer, and others. Image Text Ithaca is now accepting applications for summer 2019 admission to the Image Text MFA. Priority application deadline for MFA fellowship consideration is February 1, 2019 with later applicants reviewed as space permits.

Students in our exploratory, flexible and innovative twenty-five month program work directly with faculty and visiting artists during three annual month-long summer sessions in Ithaca, New York and during two annual week-long winter sessions in a major international cultural center (Mexico City in 2018; London in 2019). During the fall and spring academic terms, students pursue independent study in close consultation with their faculty advisors. Tuition fellowships for national and international applicants are available on a competitive basis, and room and board are provided free of charge for all accepted students during residential sessions.

ITI Press
Graduate students work closely with the Image Text Ithaca Press, which publishes innovative text and image works by national and international writers and artists. Two Image Text Ithaca Press titles were shortlisted this year for the 2018 Aperture-Paris Photo Photobook Awards: the two-volume publication Wood River / Blue Pool and Blue Pool / Cecilia, by Joann Walters, Laura Wexler, and Emma Kemp, for First Photobook Award, and My Birth by Carmen Winant, co-published with SPBH Editions, for Best Photobook Award. In addition to these titles, Image Text Ithaca Press has released several publications since 2015, including works by Claudia Rankine, John Keene, Tony Cokes, Christine Hume, and Andre Bradley’s Dark Archives, which was shortlisted for both the Rencontres d’Arles Photo-Texte Book Award and the Aperture-Paris Photo First Photobook Award in 2016.

We welcome applicants with backgrounds in writing, photography and other lens-based media, and artists working across these forms and disciplines. Experience in both text- and image-making is not required, but applicants must submit a portfolio that demonstrates sustained work in at least one of these areas.
