Studies in Visual Biography|
Combining pictures, words, and a wealth of personal detail, archival materials offer amateur yet stunningly authoritative examples of visual biography. Working within the collections at the Wesleyan Center for Film Studies, students will examine diaries, journals, scrapbooks and other forms of personal documentation, and consider the social history and visual methods implicit in the construction of material evidence. Focus on storytelling through collage and montage, with assignments in both print media and short-form digital film.
