Course Description

What is home? Is it a place, a feeling, or a mode of understanding? In this class, we will consider home and its representations in the context of documentary photography. We will learn about representations of home across many media, including photography, film, and critical writing. Simultaneously, I will guide you in developing skills in digital photography to explore your own understandings of home and to express your perspectives through photo-based projects. Using a workshop approach, the class will discuss assignments collectively. By the end of the course, you will have produced a photographic portfolio expressing your understanding of the notion of "home."
