As with other photography courses, Advanced Photography will be structured around a series of projects, the difference being the extended time allotted each project and the amount of ongoing feedback. Because thinking and talking about photographs is a key component of the work of a photographer, more responsibility for feedback will fall on the student. The context of the course is contemporary photographic art practice and the history of photography. Familiarity with these is expected. There will be a number of readings and short papers will accompany projects. It is assumed that anyone walking into a class titled Advanced Photography has a serious, ongoing relationship with the medium and a strong creative drive. We will try to shape this energy and ability into one or more focused bodies of work. Class projects are one thing; discovering what is important enough to you in your own work to sustain independent work past graduation is another. This personal element in your photography, however, is only a part of your world of art. The other component is your photographic environment and its effect on you. One is more or less conscious of the personal influence of images in art and media, but these affect every picture you make. So, the second goal of this course is to become more aware of where your work fits in all of it. Bottom line is that the real work starts when the class ends.
