The Society for Photographic Education (SPE) is a nonprofit membership organization that provides and fosters an understanding of photography as a means of diverse creative expression, cultural insight, and experimental practice. Through its interdisciplinary programs, services and publications, the society seeks to promote a broader understanding of the medium in all its forms through teaching and learning, scholarship, and criticism.
Lily says, “This is a great excuse for a road trip and quite an affordable conference at only $50 for students.”
