Primary Instructor:

The Art of the Photo Essay is intended for students who are interested in exploring visual alternatives and complements to traditional textual narrative. In this course, students will develop skills of visual composition and presentation through creating, editing and curating a portfolio of photo essays. Technically, this course will introduce students to elements of visual composition such as selecting and framing a subject, choosing a background, understanding light (both natural and introduced), and using basic editing and presentation software. Throughout the course you will keep a blog that documents the evolution of your projects as well as your development as a photo essayist. The photo essays you create will be workshopped by your peers; while this process is aimed at improving your technical skills and vision, you will also draw inspiration from seeing how others in class are handling the assignments.

Intended Audience:

This course is designed to help students develop skills of visual composition and presentation through creating, editing and curating a portfolio of photo essays.
