The Photographic Genre and the Personal
01/30/2012 - 05/04/2012
Tuesday 06:00 PM - 09:00 PM
Art Workshop 112
This class will explore historical and contemporary photography through the lens of
the photographic genre, both through the practice of photographing and through
lectures on artists practicing in each genre. The students will work in each genre for
three weeks, finding a personal voice through both the constraints and freedoms
present throughout the history of each genre. The genres will include landscape,
portraiture, staged photographs, still lives and documentary. The lectures will
include artists from the birth of photography to work made in 2011, with the hope
of showing the wide breadth of work made throughout photography's history. The
class will also be critique based, offering a forum for open and honest discussion of
work made by the students.
Enrollment is limited to 18 students.
