This course is part of the International Summer Academy Salzburg 2022.

The interaction between oneself and one’s environment can be expressed through the use of photographic media. The creation of a personal visual language and individual narratives as well as the importance of design in photography will be central elements of the curriculum. The course will focus on exploring and understanding the way we perceive ourselves and the society we live in. Diversity (demographic, cognitive, and experiential) and the concept of the gaze of the Other will be essential topics in the course.
