Class Details

This remote introductory level course offers an in-depth exploration of digital photography. Emphasis is placed on the camera’s relationship to the body and constructions of identity. Students will develop a fundamental control of photographic techniques through various exercises, experimentation, field, at home and/or studio experience. Students will learn how to use DSLR cameras and introductory level Photoshop editing techniques to create a personal body of work that examines the medium’s role in representing various identities. Additionally, visiting artist lecture presentations and thorough critique will 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.
