Fordham University’s Department of Theatre & Visual Art is proud to present an exhibition of the 2016—2017 Ildiko Butler Travel Award Recipients: Jason Boit, Phillip Gregor, Sam Robbins, and Yu Ting Lin. This highly competitive grant is offered to sophomore and junior Visual Arts Majors for independent research. Up to four Ildiko Butler Travel Awards are given annually for exceptional work in the medium of photography.
The grant has enabled students to travel the world from Rome to Havana, Berlin to Budapest, and even from Moscow to Beijing on the Trans-Mongolian Railway. In each and every case the travel opportunity afforded by the award has been educational and transformative for the students. The photographs generated while traveling often become the core of a student’s senior thesis exhibition. In addition, a selection of work from each year’s recipients is included in a year-long exhibition in the Hayden Hartnett Project Space. This year our recipients traveled across India (Boit), Italy (Gregor), America (Robbins), and Taiwan (Lin).
About the Hayden Hartnett Project Space: this space presents yearlong exhibitions of photographic work produced by students in the Department of Theatre and Visual Art. Located in the Office of Undergraduate Admission at Fordham’s Lincoln Center campus, the Hayden Hartnett Project Space introduces prospective students and their parents to the high caliber of visual work produced at Fordham University.
Location and hours: The Hayden Hartnett Project Space is inside the Office of Undergraduate Admission on the second floor of the Leon Lowenstein building, RM 203 and is open Monday—Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
One Second of Photographs Made by Eight People in Japan 2016–2017

This book is the final culmination of the course “Documentary Photography: Japan” offered by Stephan Apicella-Hitchcock through the Department of Theatre and Visual Arts at Fordham University. The course description is as follows: This intensive class is designed as a platform for intermediate and advanced level students to further develop their photographic production with an emphasis on generating documentary projects focusing on the people, culture, and architecture of Japan. The megacity of Tokyo will serve as the starting point for our investigations, with image making itineraries that will take us from the cosmopolitan ward of Shinjuku, to the center of youth culture in Shibuya; and from the cutting edge fashion districts of Harajuku, to the temples and shrines of Asakusa. Concurrent with our photographic explorations we will examine contemporary exhibitions in venues such as the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography in Ebisu, as well as view the ancient collections housed in Japan’s oldest and largest museum, the Tokyo National Museum in Ueno. Traveling by Shinkansen bullet train at 300 km/h (186 mph), we will make our way south to Kyoto, the nexus of traditional Japanese culture and history with approximately two thousand temples, shrines, and gardens that we can utilize as both the catalyst and stage for our photography. The extraordinary wealth of visual stimuli we will experience in Japan over ten days will certainly inspire, as well as function as the backdrop against which to critically discuss the strategies that photographers employ in communicating their interests.
