Description:
This course explores the complex idea of the photograph as document, beginning with the question: Are all photographs documents? Through the study of key photographers, artists and relevant writings, students gain a broad perspective into the multiple ways the photograph manifests as document, including the photograph as witness, evidence, memory and activism. Practice-based assignments, a final photographic project and oral presentations encourage students to experience the meaning of the photograph as document, and how the malleability of the digital image changes that meaning.
