Tom Fischer is a professor of photography at Savannah College of Art and Design. He is best known for his large-format black and white landscape images, shown in more than 60 exhibitions in galleries and museums in the U.S., Europe and Asia. Tom's awards and honors include: Vice Chair of the national board of the Society for Photographic Education; the James Borelli Fellowship and the G.B. Cantor Fellowship from Stanford University, as well as being selected as an NEA fellow. He has been nominated three times for U.S. Professor of the Year.
The photography department at Savannah College of Art and Design has a wealth of great teachers, many of which have taught the class Travel Photography: The Foreign and Familiar in our study abroad programs. Each one has their own approach to the class, but I am sure that the common thread is to help students find their own voice while traveling abroad.
