In this remote course we will explore the rich terrain between photography and film from the early 20th century to the present moment. Through weekly screenings, pdfs of published texts, and synchronous small discussion groups, we will study the still/moving image work of Moholy-Nagy, Helen Levitt, Gordon Parks, Mary Ellen Mark, RaMell Ross, and others. Written responses will be collected each week which will allow students to share observations and insights gleaned from each artist’s practice.
-become familiar with a wide range of practitioners working in both photography and film.
-develop writing skills by responding weekly to unfamiliar work.
-practice slow watching and reading of historical material.
