“Stories in the Social Landscape”
Photography has the ability to tell stories about the world. Capturing a momentary gesture in a fraction of a second or the tenor of light on a landscape, a photograph can provoke ideas about the relationship between people and place. In this multilevel course, students create stories about community and social values—in the process, gaining an understanding of the place of social landscape in their work. Each day, the class will go out into a community to photograph as a group; back in the classroom, this fieldwork will initiate discussions about generating ideas and approaching a subject. Looking at historic and contemporary work, students will develop a framework for finding their own expression and approach. By honing editorial skills, students will grasp the complexities of producing effective narratives.
