To search for Yale photography thesis portfolios books, we recommend using Orbis, instead of Quicksearch.
From the Library home page navigate to Orbis by clicking Books and More.
For all available Yale photo portfolios, use these key words: yale M.F.A. photography thesis (see also Temporary Acccess to 2010 and 2011 Photography Portfolios)
For Yale photo portfolios for a specific year, add the year-- for instance: yale photography M.F.A. thesis 2019
For a thesis book by a specific photographer, add their name-- for instance: yale M.F.A. photography thesis Genesis Baez
Once you find a thesis you want to see, use the link to Request for use in the Arts Library Special Collections and fill out the form to finish your request.
We are working on making better records that are easier to find and interpret for all the photo portfolios. Currently, the photo portfolios for 2010 and 2011 are not available via Orbis but you can find them here, via Archives at Yale.
Note: Once we create records in the library catalog, accessible via Orbis, we will discontinue access via Archives at Yale. 2019 and more recent years are not in Archives at Yale.
