  • Overview

    This class is designed for students who are interested in making a visual record of their time in London and in learning how to ?read? and to create photographs. We will examine some of the ways in which photographers have used their art to show different aspects of life in London, from urban street-life photography to portraiture, from fine art photography to photo-journalism. The class will include visits to contemporary and historical exhibitions. Students will be asked to make photographic responses to exhibitions they have seen or texts they have read. Working on group exercises as well as individual projects, students will create their own photo blogs and learn the skills of image
    critique. They will be offered the tools to gain a critical and practical understanding of the language of photography. The course is not designed to teach students practical or technical skills.
    Assessment: Text analysis 0 1500 words (30%) ; Photo/Text Blog/Journal with Analytical Commentary (70%).
