This course studies the history of queer photographic self portraiture and guides students in experimenting with a series of photo assignments in imaging ourselves. The class discusses issues around queer representation and visibility and how they are altered by the image-maker as subject. Students make photographs using different techniques such as photographic collage, combining images with text, and digital manipulation. Many artists will be discussed, including Claude Cahun, Martine Gutierrez, Zaneli Muholi, Laura Aguilar, Tseng Kwong Chi. This course is for anyone curious about the possibilities in photographing themselves and the history of queer image makers that came before them.
