This course will explore the art of storytelling and the art of photography as a collective means of communication. How do words affect an image? When encountering a photograph with a story, do we read first or look first? Through a wide range of in-class assignments and individual projects, students will be encouraged to both write creatively and make photographs or produce work in other visual mediums. Critiques will be given throughout the semester. The goal of the course is to explore the way that stories and photographs can intertwine, and for students to begin creating a thoughtful and cohesive body of work relating to those ideas.
