What does it mean to study photography at Bennington? This course explores a wide range of approaches to the medium and introduces students to the various photographic genres with an emphasis on contemporary practice. The class will be covering black and white analog materials and processes in the first seven weeks and switching over to digital capture and inkjet printing in the second seven weeks. Opportunities to collaborate with the Camera Mounts class will also be available over the second seven weeks.
This class will meet twice a week. To minimize attendance in the photo labs, only half the class will meet in-person at one time. The in-person classes will meet in the photo labs and will be hands-on, demonstration based. The second class meeting of the week will be asynchronous and include library research, lectures, and small group work.
Please note that this course will require additional materials to be purchased by the student.
