Photography tends to favor the static, especially when it comes to the land. We see landscapes as shrined, unmoving objects through the picture plane, but this is not the reality of our rapidly shifting world. In this class, we look for ways to connect to the land through photographing in a way that reflects the full agency and complexity of our subject: its histories, ecologies, and possibilities. The class consists of diverse weekly readings (which include texts by Robin Wall Kemmer, Rebecca Solnit, Martha Sandweiss, Teju Cole, Robert Adams) conversations, and critiques.
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.
Note: All camera formats welcome.
