A portrait photograph can offer itself to a multitude of implications and interpretations, serving as a realistic representation of a person, a fictional narrative, or even an allegorical idea. This class will help expand and reinvigorate your approach to portraiture. Using such artists as Emmet Gowin, Francesca Woodman, Harry Callahan, and Joyce Tenneson as inspiration, students will explore treatment of subject and composition. Instruction includes discussion, demonstrations and both individual and class critiques.
Note: This is a non-darkroom-based class; use outside lab to have work developed. Film or digital cameras are acceptable. Please bring small portfolio of your own recent people photos to 1st class meeting.
