This course is conceived as a collective space where students, with faculty guidance, will build the activities, readings, discussions and assignments in exploration of vernacular photography, digital and physical collections of images.There will be six live class meetings on Zoom with parallel and additional online conversations, activities and shared research boards presented on the Atget Studio learning platform. By design, this uniquely assembled space is a mutable learning arena where participants should be open to changes, adaptations and strategies in building collective knowledge and exploring counter-narratives in photography.

Course Level / Prerequisite: Intermediate: You are familiar with a camera, whether film or digital.
