This winter term, escape brutal Michigan weather by globetrotting with the world famous Magnum cameramen! Or groove to some hep, hot jazz in 1940s Harlem with Langston Hughes and Roy DeCarava. Visit the sweet, sensual climes of Russian Georgia and the welcoming, teeming farmhouses of the Ukraine with Robert Capa and John Steinbeck. Ride with Dorothea Lange as she defies the U.S. government on her trip from the Bay area to Manzanar. Drive on down to 1980s Texas to hear some good rock and roll and “true stories” with Bill Eggleston and David Byrne. Get lost in American cities and towns far and wide with W. Eugene Smith, obsessive photographer. And much more!

This course will explore works that mix print with photo, combine the verbal and visual, integrate the digital and the chemical. You’ll read some great books, do some thoughtful writing both critical and creative, look at some terrific photos and films, keep an online image diary/blog and conceive, construct and publish your own photobooks for public display.
