The Photographic Portfolio
Students actively seek specific photographic territory to explore and build a body of work. The resulting images are extensively work-shopped for sequencing. Particular emphasis on the making of high quality prints. Semester culminates in the production of finished portfolios in three formats: a printed form, a digital form, and an exhibition or installation form. Each student's evolving body of work to be informed by relevant precedents from the history of photography. These are brought into discussions of the work as the semester progresses, with an emphasis on examining bodies of photographic work that communicate something larger than a single idea. Instructor consent required. One course.
