Photographic Narratives (PHO4128.01)

Terry Boddie

In this course, students will be guided through the process of creating a series of assignments that explore the photograph as a narrative device. Students will learn how to explore the photographic narrative through class discussions and peer critique of their work. Structurally the assignments can take a traditional documentary form or a linear or thematic narrative. Image editing and sequencing to tighten narrative structure will be emphasized, as well as critically evaluating photography projects by other photographers through written reflections. The goal by the end of the class is a coherent body of images which will consists of three projects, The Self, The Other and The Group. Students may use analog or digital cameras.
