Documentary Photography: ITALY 2014
(4 credits) With Professors Joseph Lawton & Stephan Apicella-Hitchcock. This intensive class will introduce you to the basic and advanced techniques of image production with a major emphasis on generating documentary projects directly relating to the people, architecture, and culture of Italy.
The cosmopolitan city of Rome, rich with artistic history, will serve as the source for our daily photographic explorations, as well as the catalyst for discussions addressing the historical significance of the documentary impulse. Our studies and production will take us from exhibitions in progressive contemporary art galleries, to the ancient architecture of the Coliseum as we utilize the wealth of visual stimuli as a resource, as well as a backdrop against which to critically discuss the strategies that documentarians utilize in communicating their interests.
