Intermediate Photography

Intermediate , Seminar—Fall

This class investigates techniques, methods, and strategies of black-and-white and color photography. Students will develop a body of work based on personal vision, interests, and beliefs. We will look at key moments in the history of the photography, specifically as it pertains to documentary and conceptual traditions, in order to contextualize the work that students make. Students will be introduced to ideas of installation, book layout, editing and sequencing through bibliomaniac explorations, and gallery/museum visits. Students are welcome to use either analog or digital format and will be supported with technical guidance. Experimentation with mixed media is encouraged. The development of a cohesive and original body of photographs—based on making, thinking, and remaking—will be at the core of this experience.
