Photography in a New Media Context

when 5 August 2013 - 23 August 2013
duration 3 weeks
credits 9.9 ECTS

In 2013, the practice of photography is arguably both accessible and democratic. The prevalence of digital cameras, GPS tracking devices, and camera phones inspires photographers to harness the power of the medium in this new context. This course invites students to conceive of their own photographic project related to their research interest. With each class meeting, students will engage in critiques of each others’ work and constructively converse about visual research.
