Camera Performances (PHO2114.01)

Luiza Folegatti

This class will look at the intersection of photography and performance art inside the contributions of feminist and queer practices. Students will respond to different performance prompts thinking about the role of the camera as an artistic and documentation tool. They will also engage in readings and analysis of works from BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ authors and photographers from the global south. Students will experiment with performances, learn camera techniques, practice photographing still and moving subjects, develop art direction projects, compose narratives, and create installations with photographs.

Photoshop and Lightroom will be available on all workstations in the Photo Digital Lab.  

Students will be required to have a Mac-compatible external hard drive and inkjet photo paper to complete assignments.
