DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY I

Limitations can be a powerful tool for the artist. With restricted access to the familiar spaces of the city, photographic subjects, and their DSLR cameras, students from Digital Photography I grabbed their camera phones and got to work producing a stunning amount of images that spoke directly to isolation, their current conditions, and their own creative potential. In a series of weekly projects that included Family Portraits (images made of people in their homes) , My View (a glimpse at each student’s view from isolation), Distant Portraits (an image of a friend or family member through their computer screens), and Self-Portraits (which included experimentation with light, shadow, color and alter-egos), students re-imagined their surroundings through photographic images.

DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY II

Limitations can be a powerful tool for the artist. With restricted access to the familiar spaces of the city, photographic subjects, and their DSLR cameras, students from Digital Photography II grabbed their camera phones and got to work producing a stunning amount of images that spoke directly to isolation, their current conditions, and their own creative potential. In a series of weekly projects that included Family Portraits (images made of people in their homes) , My View (a glimpse at each students view from isolation) Distant Portraits (making an image of a friend or family member through their computer screens), and Levitation (a project inspired by Salvador Dali’s Atomicas, for which students built a narrative around the theme of levitation and added careful staging and some Photoshop skills ), students re-imagined their surroundings through photographic images.
