People/ Place (PHO4219.01)

Jonathan Kline

This course offers students the opportunity to explore the historical and social landscape of the region surrounding Bennington College. Our goal will be to make compelling, insightful images that reflect the diversity of the people and the complexity of social issues they face. We will be experimenting with both digital and analog cameras and location lighting to explore candid versus staged interactions, and expressive versus objective recording.

A second facet of this course will be researching our College’s collection of social landscape photographs by Garry Winogrand, Lee Friedlander, and others, and curating an exhibit of these photographs for the Fall 2015 season at the Bennington Museum. In the curatorial process students will develop their own photographic eye and prepare them for producing a final body of creative work.
