This workshop is a collective practice of thoughtful looking and thinking. What strategies are available to visual image-makers addressing real-world issues? In this online course we investigate the many ways fictions can illuminate the truth, visually. Students will be introduced to examples in still photography, film, and other visual media, and explore how to integrate these methods into their own practice, whether in a documentary, fine-art, or new-media context. We look critically at the work of photographer Jennifer Karady, artist Alexandra Bell, performance artist Dread Scott, filmmakers Omer Fast and Yael Bartana, as well as Debi Cornwall’s own multimedia projects, among many others.

Prerequisite: Advanced: You are comfortable with your camera, whether film or digital, and with your photographic practice. You have already produced or are working on a body of work. You are proficient in Adobe applications such as Photoshop, Lightroom, Premiere, et cetera. You understand printing or portfolio revision processes. You may be seeking ways to strengthen your work through sequencing, theoretical readings, and group critiques.

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.
