ART 272 Special Topics: Documentary Photography

This course asks students to delve into the context and 'story' behind documentary photographs. Students will learn to look beyond the surface and investigate the framework in which documentary images are created thinking about how we "read" an image within the historical and cultural context. Through research and collaborative investigation, students will pursue documentary projects that take them into the community to photograph and learn about the people, place, and community surrounding their subject matter.
