This course explores the photographic medium through hands-on experimentation. Every week a new theme is explored through image interpretation and active image-making. Students will be given unique guidelines to follow in order to come up with their own images in class (based on the weekly theme) without prior planning. Activities will encourage students to embrace a more hands-on approach, by responding to new ideas in the moment, while also incorporating some of their own ideas in the making process. Some of the themes that will be covered include the role of subjectivity, language, limitation and context in relation to photography.
* Students will be informed of the materials needed in the first lesson.
