From cell phones to security cameras, the gaze of the camera lens (and even the idea of it) is ever ubiquitous. How then, do we situate our own bodies when making photographs? Whether we choose to be in front of the camera or behind it, working representationally or abstractly, how do we relate our whole selves to the camera eye? This class seeks ways to creatively explore the bond between Camera and Body. Together the class looks at early motion studies, forms of portraiture, and performance-based photo practices in prompting shooting assignments. Additionally, through guided embodiment exercises, writing prompts, and group discussion, students explore articulations of their own relationship to the lens in developing a new working body of images.

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

I would like for students to bring to class 1) a photograph they took where they felt “fully in the moment” (interpret how they see fit) 2) a photograph someone else took where the audience “feels the presence of the photographer."
