The photographic essay has long been a rich and diverse medium. From W. Eugene Smith’s portrait of a Country Doctor in Life Magazine to the fantastic worlds fabricated in Kahn and Selesnick’s City of Salt, the works are as varied as the artists who create them. This course will delve into the narrative potential of combining photographic imagery with text or sound through sequence or time.

Students will have the opportunity to explore the medium through historical and contemporary examples while developing a project of their own creation. The instructor’s experience in both traditional and time-based photographic narrative will provide a basis for critique and discussion focused heavily on the implied narratives within the photographs themselves, as well as the narrative constructed through presentation and text. By the end of the course, each student will have a strong start to a photographic essay ready to present for grant opportunities for further development or to prepare for publication.

Students should have a strong Photographic background and an interest in writing and narrative. An in-progress Photographic Essay project is optional. / Facilities fee of $40 in addition to tuition. / Open to students ages 16 and above.

Prerequisite: Working knowledge of Mac OS X, and a familiarity with digital photography. Experience with Premiere Pro, InDesign, Photoshop is helpful, but not required.

What to bring: Pen or pencil; notebook or sketchbook; USB drive, blank CD, or cloud storage option for saving work; and a Digital SLR camera. A list of ideas for a photographic essay project, or an in-progress photographic essay project.
