Alternate Visions: Seeing the world through Women and LGBTQIA+ Contemporary Photographers (APA2014.01)

Farzana Wahidy, MFA Teaching Fellow

This course will offer students an opportunity to look at some contemporary female and LGBTQIA+ photographers’ work. Students will get to talk directly with the photographers from different parts of the world. The invited photographers will include some emerging and well-established photographers. The focus of the course will be to find how contemporary female and LGBTQIA+ photographers make their paths in this male dominated field, what stories they are covering and why.

Classwork will include exploration and critique of imagery, guest speaker presentations, and discussions. Each student will be required to submit bi-weekly reflection assignments of 250 to 400 words.

Learning Outcomes:
-Build awareness of contemporary female LGBTQIA+ photographers
