This course, part of the department's required core curriculum, continues the dialogues that began in Sophomore Seminar. Students will further explore the language and theory of photography, and will begin to apply critical and technical skills in defining their own photographic statement. During this seminar students will begin to develop a body of work, understanding the process necessary to create a portfolio or exhibition. Included will be papers, visits to shows, and working throughout the year on developing a personal style. Students must switch instructors in the second semester of this course.
