Our understanding of what constitutes documentary photography has changed and shifted over its history. This course encourages students to consider the breadth of options offered by contemporary documentary practice and think broadly about how to represent their subjects. Group feedback sessions on the photographs made outside of class help students develop their photographic voice and learn to ask the essential and hard questions about documentary practice. The class also includes presentations on project development as well as on contemporary practitioners of documentary photography.

Course Level / 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.

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.
