Everyone likes to laugh, but what is visual punning? While the camera is uniquely designed to master the coincidence of timing and framing, a comedic disposition is more than techniques: it is embracing other possibilities like chance and juxtaposition. Jacques Henri Lartigue, Martin Munkacsi, Helen Levitt, and Elliott Erwitt are among the artists we will discuss during this workshop. Weekly photo assignments are introduced by in-class lecture and slideshow, as well as additional at home reading materials. A guest artist will join our last class for the final portfolio review and last class. Some writing is required.

Course Level / Prerequisite: Open to All Skill Levels: Students ranging from beginner to experienced will be successful in classes.
