During this intensive five-week course, students explore the function and significance of self-portraiture. After covering the genreā€™s historical and conceptual development, we delve into a wide range of artists using self-portraiture. At the same time, we make our own self-portrait images. Weekly exercises are designed to guide participants through various approaches to self-portraiture. We focus on close looking and using photography as a tool for connection, which enables us to see ourselves clearly in relation to the world around us. This course is limited to 10 students.

Prerequisite: Open to All Skill Levels: Students ranging from beginner to experienced will be successful in classes.

Note: Digital SLRs, Mirrorless Cameras, or Smartphone Cameras are all suitable for this course.
