This course examines the intersections of documentary photography and race, economics, class, and culture in the United States. Using intersectionality theory, students delve into concepts such as visibility, gaze, compositional hierarchy, and storytelling, and how documentary photography integrates these themes to produce compelling images that accurately represent marginalized communities. Essays, lectures, and presentations offer insight into our current discourse around race and racialized bodies. Participants pursue an independent research project focused on developing an ethical framework for documenting marginalized communities.

Prerequisite: Open to all skill levels. Students ranging from beginner to experienced will be successful in classes.

Note: All camera formats are welcome.

Courses are subject to minimum enrollment. Please register early, within five days of the start-date, to reduce the likelihood of course cancellation and to ensure you receive all course-related materials in time to prepare for class.
