Eight People, One Place and a Book

Listed in: Art and the History of Art, as ARHA-306


Justin F. Kimball (Section 01)


In this advanced photography course, eight students and the professor will choose a single site to travel to weekly to photograph. Participants will work individually in their chosen medium to build a body of work that represents their experience of that place. Simultaneously, the group will be collectively designing and producing a limited edition book that weaves together the varied ways these individual artists see, experience and produce work from a single place. The course will also include group and individual critiques of the students’ work, historical and topical lectures from the history of photography, and the careful examination of the book as a final vehicle for artistic work. Analog and digital technologies associated with book making will be reviewed, as well as the ideas and theory of book structure, sequence, and design.

Requisite: Introductory Photography, at least one other intermediate photography course or equivalent, and permission of the instructor.  Limited to 8 students. Enrollment is determined by interview with the professor. Fall semester.  Professor Kimball.
