This course introduces students to the historical, ethical, and aesthetic foundations of contemporary documentary practice. Through expansive exercises, prompted by in-depth presentation and discussion of seminal documentary works, students will begin to experiment with this mode of making images. Supported by in-class critique, students end this class possessing new narrative strategies, including oral histories, archival mining, and intervention, and leave with a set of questions and images that will guide their practice in the future.
