PHO 405 - Photo Essay


This course is restricted to Juniors and Seniors. This course is designed to expand upon the traditional meaning of the photo essay by examining the work of individual artists and how each approached this genre. Beginning with the strict definition of an essay and moving towards both a broader understanding and interpretation, students will learn how photographs can be produced and organized in series to create larger essays with more visual and intellectual complexity. They will learn that an essay need not be constructed around a single idea, but rather, can be layered both conceptually and thematically (in as examples such as portraits, urban or rural landscapes, neighborhoods, social groups, family, cities or geographic regions, subcultures, etc.) Ultimately, these multidimensional essays or portraits become a larger document that is greater than the sum of their parts. Students will create a portfolio based on their own interpretation of the photographic essay. Prerequisite: PHO304 Photography IV: Intro to Color Photography (3 Credits)
