Our emotions and personal experiences can drive and inform our working methodologies. A documentation, a visual poem, or a personal photographic journal can often evolve into a compelling project that is meaningful to a diverse audience. During this course students will be encouraged to think about photographic play in poetic, unexpected, and inspirational ways. You will learn how to craft your images in a way that engages your audience. Cheryle will teach you how to locate beauty within the quotidian—to elevate the ordinary.
Via course readings, research and awareness of Contemporary artists working in a similar mode, students will develop visual and conceptual strategies for conveying their ideas through a long-form project. Via group discussions and one-on-one critiques, students will hone and further develop their body-of-work. Conversations will revolve around the editing and sequencing of new and/or existing photographs, the writing of a succinct statement about the work, and articulating a vision of one’s project from concept, to publication to exhibition.
