Picture Yourself in Our Photography Book Collection

John Scanlan, longtime member of the school community and current Spartan grandparent, has donated a meticulously curated collection of nearly 1,000 fine art photography books with topics spanning a wide range of genres and techniques, including documentary, architectural, portraiture, fashion, figure study, landscape, sports, street, still life, abstract, modern, conceptual and superrealism. The collection also includes texts on early photography techniques and photo criticism, as well as photographer monographs.

With his gift, Scanlan has established a robust reference library for use by current and future generations of students and teachers. The complete collection is housed in the Bowen Fine Arts Center on campus. If you would like to arrange a time to look through the texts, please contact Photography Instructor Chris Caselli ’82.
