Faculty

Justin F. Kimball (Section 01)

Description

In this advanced photography course (a continuation of ARHA 306), eight students and the professor will choose a single site to travel to weekly to photograph. Participants will work individually in their chosen medium to build a body of work that represents their experience of that place. Simultaneously, the group will be collectively designing and producing a limited edition book that weaves together the varied ways these individual artists see, experience and produce work from a single place. The course will also include group and individual critiques of the students’ work, historical and topical lectures from the history of photography, and the careful examination of the book as a final vehicle for artistic work. Analog and digital technologies associated with book making will be reviewed, as well as the ideas and theory of book structure, sequence, and design.

Requisite: ARHA 306 or equivalent, and permission of the instructor.  Limited to 8 students. Enrollment is determined by interview with the professor. Spring semester.  Professor Kimball.

If Overenrolled: Interviews will be used to select a group of students who have a range of experiences, ideas, and approaches.
