A picture is said to be worth a thousand words. A great documentary project exploring a social, cultural, political, or personal issue has the power to tell a story in a unique, convincing, and visually compelling way. In this class, students examine and practice the various aspects of conceptualizing, planning, and executing their documentary projects through discussions, personal assignments, and photo critiques. Documentary essays by master and contemporary photographers are also discussed.

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.
