Even the most familiar and ordinary places have the ability to reveal clues that point to the mysteries of the past. Symbols and metaphors found in the landscape serve as bridges between the past and the present, the ordinary and the remarkable. With our cameras, our hearts, and our minds, we will search like archeologists, to seek what is no longer there physically, allowing light and the land to reveal the presence of what is no longer there.
There will be daily presentations to look at the work of photographers working with and in the landscape and provide context for each day’s photography assignments. During the week we will go out several times as a group and students will also have the opportunity to work independently for several of the photography prompts. We will review and talk about the work daily.
Allowing our imagination to play, we will intermingle recollections, personal narratives, and history to create images that transform place, projecting the landscape forward and backward in time.
This one-week course will help you discover new possibilities, expand your visual interests, and provide an opportunity to explore your personal narrative in the landscape. Students may work with any kind of digital camera including mobile devices.
