Everyday we are inundated with images. They're all consuming and impact every aspect of our lives. In this class students learn about image culture and using appropriation as a technique to respond to images and create work that ranges from the personal to the universal. Students learn how to rephotograph existing source material, including found images, family photo albums, printed ephemera, and magazines, to create new narratives. The class culminates with a group critique of a completed series of images.

Course Level / Prerequisite: Intermediate: You are familiar with a camera, whether film or digital. You understand aperture, shutter speed, exposure, white balance, histograms, and how to control focus. You are comfortable editing and processing your images. You may want to learn how to utilize your camera in a more thoughtful and articulate way, or learn more about lighting or how to utilize theoretical concepts in relation to your portfolio of work.
