This course is a thorough introduction to color photography. Weekly project-based assignments and critiques address students' aesthetic and technical progress; readings and discussions will introduce students to historical and contemporary art practices, with an emphasis on current photographic theory. Lab sessions will cover a range of techniques including the nuances of color, color film, digital capture, color management and archival inkjet printing. An additional lab workshop will meet once a week for two hours.
This is a hybrid studio-seminar course for students in the studio arts and photography. The course will critically engage with many prevalent themes shared among contemporary visual arts of all disciplines. Weekly student presentations and adaptive critiques will take place alongside reading discussions, screenings, and artist presentations and at least one field trip. Students will develop their art-making/photography-making practice in dialogue with expanded contemporary art practices. This course is for intermediate students in all disciplines who are interested in incorporating a thematic approach to their art making.
