About


Anthony Scibilia first came to photography in 1992 as an art history student at Cornell University where he began to document his explorations of the acoustics of Romanesque and Gothic church spaces in France. Since that time, he has earned two advanced degrees in Art History from Columbia University, and produced more than 12,000 images of art and architecture in Europe and the United States. Anthony currently lives in Boston, and is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Liberal Arts at the Berklee College of Music, where he teaches courses in art history, philosophy, musical performance, composition, and improvisation, as well as courses in the Berklee Global Jazz Institute. Anthony has taught drawing, photography, and architectural design at many colleges in the United States and abroad, including Columbia University, Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), and the École Nationale Supérieure d’architecture in Versailles, France. Anthony began playing the piano at the age of 10, and attended the Eastman School of Music as a teen. Music has been a central part of his life ever since. Most recently, Anthony has performed solo and led group concerts at the New England Conservatory, the Berklee College of Music, and the Lilypad.
