Each week, students will participate in intensive critique conversations where their work will be reviewed and discussed. These critiques will provide valuable insight into identifying the content of the images, the potential development of narrative ideas, and the effectiveness of the images when viewed as a cohesive body of work. Through constructive feedback and collaborative discussions, students will refine their artistic vision and storytelling skills.

A significant aspect of this course will be the exploration of different forms of presentation for photographic projects. From traditional print formats to innovative installations and time-based works, students will consider the most appropriate form to convey their message effectively. Through guided discussions and experimentation, students will broaden their understanding of the relationship between content and form in photography.
