Alison’s photographic interests lie in the built environment—particularly the suburban landscape. Her work explores how Americans use, live in and sell homes and is informed by research in environmental psychology, suburban sprawl, consumerism, and “The American Dream.” Her work has been shown in exhibitions across the country including: Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, New York, Ohio, Texas and Vermont.
Since joining the Cinema and Photography Department in the fall of 2011, Alison has taught a wide range of course topics such as: introductory and intermediate levels of digital and analog photography, digital printing, history of the still image, business of photography and a graduate level seminar. Alison also helps manage the CP Photography Labs.
