Over the past 50 years, the various staff photographers of Sonoma State University have taken pictures of events, people, buildings, Commencements, Convocations, classroom activities and many others topic areas. Much of the older collection is in black and white print and slides and were actually developed in a darkroom on campus. As we moved into the digital world, so did photography. The darkroom, all the chemicals and the black and white prints became a memory of the past, although all of those photos and slides still exist in a hard copy archive.
All photography work is now digital and is stored electronically. Below are selections from different time periods of Sonoma State University’s history.
