In this course, the third of the Program’s Core Studio curriculum, students explore the language and theory of photography, as it informs still and moving image practices, applying critical thinking and technical skills to define their own visual approach. Emphasis is placed on conceptual development and creative strategies along with writing and research projects. Students build on their technical skills, hone their creative vision, and gain a critical perspective through classroom discussions and presentations, in addition to self- and peer-to-peer evaluation. Lectures, readings, writing, and gallery, museum and commercial studio visits provide context for the students’ work and help define their ongoing practice. This studio course runs in tandem with Core Lab 3.
