Celebrate the art and humanity of the queer gaze in imagemaking. This class focuses on the sensual queer body through the practice of fine art photography. Students delve into the history of the queer gaze, learn to speak clearly about their artistic intentions, and begin to concept and execute their own erotic work. Participants explore ideas around consent and emotional safety when creating this kind of sensitive imagery. We also cover technical issues such as lighting and model direction. Please note that this class is open to all students regardless of gender or sexuality.
