This course explores photography as a vernacular tool for Imaging Self, reflecting on identity through place, culture, and popular media. Focus will be on self-representation, while investigating the representation of others historically in Western media, North America and the United States.
Online course includes presentations, class readings and discussions, and assigned projects in lens-based based media. Though photography is the main medium students may choose to explore additional related media such as audio or video.
Main Assignments explore themes around self, while the Final Project will be the students’ choice of direction, discussed in a proposal, and developed the second week of the course.
