Legends of the lens

‘University Magazine’ gets up close and personal with three great photographers

The mid-1950s were exciting years for RIT’s School of Photography. The first students to complete the new bachelor’s degree program in photography graduated in 1956. Several of the graduates from that era became internationally known pioneers in the field of photography.

Bruce Davidson ’54, Carl Chiarenza ’57 and Pete Turner ’56 are profiled here. We plan to feature other “Legends” in future issues.
