Hybrids: Alternative Approaches in Photography (PHO4215.01)

Terry Boddie

Students in this interdisciplinary course focus on combining photography with other artistic disciplines. They explore the techniques that can directly manipulate the image before, during and after recording the photograph. Experimentation and creative risk taking throughout the various assignments is encouraged. Through this process of visual exploration and experimentation students produce projects in both two-dimensional and three-dimensional formats using various multidisciplinary techniques. Particular emphasis is placed on examining and discussing the contemporary artists whose creative practice expands this area of photography.
