Directed Projects (PHO4247.01)

Terry Boddie

Students in this advanced level course will use research in both texts and images, and reflective writing, to hone their critical thinking skills to expand their photographic practice. Group critique will be a central component of the course, facilitating constructive evaluation of work in progress. By the end of the semester, students will produce a body of work that represents their exploration over the course of the term in a way that communicates their own unique perspective as an artist.

Learning Outcomes:
Explore contemporary photographic and multidisciplinary art techniques and ideas
Develop and sustain visual projects through independent research
Engage in critical discussions of the work of contemporary BIPOC and LGBTQ multidisciplinary artists
Write critically about own work and that of other photographers
