The aim of this elective module is to develop your visual
literacy and build skills within photography, fieldwork and design
Through hands‐on assignments you will build a photographic skill sets. Whether you shoot via your phone, with a professional digital single-lens reflex camera, or use participant generated material, figuring out which of the photographs are most distinctive is often the hardest expertise to learn. We will discuss the fundamentals of editing, sequencing, and making sense of the images. The course will provide innovative, experimental exercises and discussions to help you improve seeing skills and inspire you to think differently about image making, personal vision and photographic practice.
A fieldengagement project (conducted as a group experience) is part of the course. Through photographic experiments and participant involvement you will explore and represent a field/case study. You will furthermore reflect on what new knowledge is generated through these visual processes and visual representations, and how this designedly approach to field engagement might be used in other contexts e.g. future thesis building.
The class is designed to be a learning journey for those newer to photography and fieldwork -‐ and a creative kick‐start for those with more experience. All images will be uploaded for class viewing and discussion.
