This remote introductory level course offers an in-depth exploration of the DSLR camera and image by utilizing photographic digital technology. Emphasis is placed on the camera’s relationship to the body, domestic space and constructions of identity. Students will develop a fundamental control of photographic processes through technical exercises and at-home/on-campus and online experimentations. Students will learn how to use DSLR cameras, editing techniques and photographic curation to create an online portfolio and exhibition reflecting on a personal body of work that examines the medium’s role in representing (or not representing) identities. Additionally, three photographers will be visiting our zoom classes to give virtual presentations on their individual processes and artistic works. There will be short weekly readings and in-depth critiques to foster theoretical and visual literacy for the analysis of works. How is photography implicated in the construction and performance of identity? How does it complicate national, cultural, gender, race and sexual identity?
