Listed in: Art and the History of Art, as ARHA-18


Justin F. Kimball (Section 01)


An introduction to black-and-white still photography. The basic elements of photographic technique will be taught as a means to explore both general pictorial structure and photography’s own unique visual language. Emphasis will be centered less on technical concerns and more on investigating how images can become vessels for both ideas and deeply human emotions. Weekly assignments, weekly critiques, readings, and slide lectures about the work of artist-photographers, one short paper, and a final portfolio involving an independent project of choice. Two three-hour meetings per week. Requisite: Art 02 or 04, or consent of the instructor. Limited to 12 students. Fall and Spring semesters. Visiting Professor Kimball.
