DM-UY 3183 Photography and Words

3 Credits
This course is about the relationship between images and text, from the expository text of photojournalism (descriptive, informative, investigative) to the poetic text in ‘zines’ and artist books (subversive, surreal, insightful). There will be projects that address different approaches to photography and different uses of text, from the straightforward to the experimental, and an understanding of these approaches will be gained through readings, lectures, and outings that provide a historical and theoretical foundation for assignments. Through the semester’s work students will develop an understanding of how words contextualize photographs, and how the two can be used symbiotically for unique meaning.
 

Prerequisite(s): DM-UY 2183 .
