Please note this is an Online CourseThis intensive workshop builds students' skills as documentary photographers, with an emphasis on rigor, accuracy, and fairness toward the subject matter, as well as the development of personal style. These two poles-journalistic accuracy and personal expression-are often in creative tension within nonfiction photographic practice. As a medium that simultaneously reports on the outside world and functions as a powerful tool of personal expression, documentary photography plays an important role in mediating between the self and other. Through assignments, group critiques, and discussion of the work of major photographers, this workshop immerses students in the central questions of nonfiction photography. The editing of assignments is emphasized as an integral part of developing a personal style. The goal of this course is to produce a complete photographic essay suitable for publication or exhibition.
