This studio class will examine the intersection between actual photographic documents and the processes involved in their making, from constructed psychological textures to lighting and lenses. Classroom discussions and lectures will focus on the work of artists who manipulate their images in subtle and overt ways, such as Miroslav Tichy, Collier Schorr, Oliver Chanarin and Adam Broomberg, and Sharon Lockhart. Students will be expected to engage in research and discussion on these topics as well as produce a substantial body of work for presentation and final critique.
Weekly projects are usually suggested from the students’ own work. Active participation in the seminar and the development of a project required. Following through on the project usually results in a portfolio of original photographic prints; 10-15 prints is typical.
Not Open to Freshmen.
