CORE1022 - Introduction to Photography
This is team-taught, integrated class between Photography and Art History. It will introduce first year students to the discipline of Photography through a combination of studio based projects as well as lectures and discussions on the history of Photography. This course has two interrelated components: a lecture section devoted to the history and aesthetics of photography; and a studio section that explores historically and aesthetically relevant photographic practices. This dual approach allows students to both academically contextualize and research historic issues while concurrently creatively expressing their understandings of such issues by using a broad array of photographic tools and techniques. The course engages lecture, discussion, projects, activities of critical inquiry, observation, analysis, research, and writing to hone photographic studio practice, aesthetic vocabulary, and communication skills as well as provide a foundation in the history of the discipline.
