Acting Dean of the Faculty of Art and cutting-edge educator Peter Sramek is directing the auction proceeds from his work to international collaborations for the Photography Department, including student travel.

The Courtyard at the Bargello comes from Sramek’s Italia Panoramica series and was made during his last tenure as Florence Program Coordinator in 2007. This series captures the rich history of the Italian architecture and countryside in black and white. Sramek is Acting Dean in the Faculty of Art and has taught in the Photography program since 1976. His recent work explores photography’s ability to represent sites of cultural history and the ambience of these architectural spaces.
