Fall 2012 not offered
|This course may be repeated for credit.|
This is an intensive course intended for students with a solid foundation in photography. The students can choose to work in either film-based or digital media while developing their own unique voice. Topics will include medium-format film cameras, fiber paper, large-format digital printing, and editing and sequencing images. Lectures and class discussions will provide a historical context, while presentations by visiting artists and trips to galleries and museums will introduce students to contemporary work in the medium. Emphasis will be placed on the weekly discussions of students' work.
