Course Description

By examining the individual, one gains a better understanding of the
whole. This course goes beyond traditional portraiture by focusing on the people who make up a larger community. Students should prepare for this course by doing preliminary research on a community or group with whom they would like to work. Discussions will include gaining access, what it means to document a community, creating an archive, and how to structure such a project. We will look at the work of August Sander, Tina Barney, and Sharon Lockhart, among others. This is a critique and discussion course with emphasis on aesthetic and conceptual issues. The final class will culminate in a portfolio review. PREREQUISITE: Photo II or portfolioreview *NOTE: No class, Fri Nov 28
