ART 219 - Creative Photography: from Sun to Pixel

Semester Hours: 4

This course will examine the use of photography as a means for creative expression. Projects will approach the medium to communicate meaning as a contemporary art practice - including image capturing, image appropriation and its reference to visual culture. Traditional photography skills will be taught, along with camera-less exposure processes such as pinhole cameras and cyanotypes. The course will introduce a range of presentation and output options for photographs - from printing onto two-dimensional mediums, transferring onto objects, projecting onto surfaces, and many more. Additionally, students will explore themes tied intimately to the photograph, such as memory, nostalgia, identity, performance, and the document.
