William J. Weber
William J. Weber has been an instructor of photography at MCC since 2000. He has received his BS Ed, MS Ed, and an MFA from Northern Illinois University.
His work in art has been primarily photography, painting, and printmaking. His current works in photography focus on the landscape of the American West. He tries to envision the landscape as it was encountered by the Native Americans and the pioneers in their long migrations across the prairie. The grassy plains, as well as the mountain and desert land formations, are his principle subjects, as are the architectural remains and legacies of the tribal groups, the Spanish colonists, and the early settlers.
