The photography department will be offering several sections of Photo Topics in the spring semester. Topics vary for each section and the instructor for each section will be discussing contemporary issues in photography and photographers in today?s world. An example of one Photo Topic is Insight Out: Self as Subject--A self-portrait is more than just a recorded reflection or presence of ourselves; it is a way to discover our point of view and opinions about the world around us. Finding ourselves in our subject matter leads us to discover our vision of life and how to best depict that vision by photographic means. We will start by looking at a recorded history of the self-portrait both in photography and painting. We will look at contemporary photographers who have used themselves in their art and who have used other people and objects in order to express and represent themselves. Active participation in this class will be requested through improvisational photographic exercises in narrative construction and self-portrait. Guest speakers will supplement this class and students will be required to make class presentations on occasion. The class environment will emphasize and support experimentation in the medium by traditional means and otherwise.
