Course Description

Please note this is an Online Course

In this course, students investigate themselves as they turn their camera inward to explore their identities, psyche, and human condition. This is achieved by close examination of gesture, ideas of interior and exterior self, and the use of light. Discussions address different approaches to self-portraiture-fiction or fantasy, diaristic or autobiographical, private or public-and the performative self. Whatever approach utilized, students gain the tools to communicate a deep understanding of themselves through the camera. Students develop a series of self-portraits guided by weekly critiques, lectures, readings, and discussions. This course is designed for those who are interested in developing a body of work that explores self-portraiture as a communicative tool.

prerequisite: Photo II or portfolio review
