This course is for emerging artists working in the photographic medium who are interested in polishing their portfolios both technically and conceptually. Through weekly group critiques, each student's work will be reviewed and discussed in relation to his or her immediate and long-term goals. We will also spend some time reviewing artists' statements, on which each student will receive individual feedback. Students will be encouraged to bring in completed projects or works-in-progress for editing, as well as to shoot new work for inclusion in their portfolios. Whether you are planning on applying to graduate school or seeking exhibition or commercial opportunities, this course will help you articulate your vision. NOTE: Please bring samples of your work to the first session.
