Documentary photography is a powerful tool for telling a story, making a point or giving voice to people who have none. In this course, you will learn to document what you see with your photographs. By examining the work of respected documentary photographers, you will explore the boundaries of objective reporting while developing an awareness your own biases. Your photographs may be about a place— the San Diego River Valley; a topic that interests you— eating locally produced food or an issue that defines our times. Instruction includes demonstrations of field practice and weekly critiques of project photographs as well as a final group exhibition.

  • NOTE  Elective for Certificate in Photography. All cameras, including Smartphone cameras are welcome. Schedule includes one Saturday field-trip.
