ArtCR40N03 The Photographer’s Eye, Macaulay Honors College, CUNY
The Macaulay Honors program invited me to develop a photography course for honors non-art majors. Inspired by John Szarkowski’s The Photographer’s Eye, weekly assignments considered concepts of The Thing Itself, The Detail, The Frame, Time, and Vantage Point. Students photographed with a range of digital cameras, depending on what they had access to, including iPhones and DSLRs.
Arts 251B, Color Photography, Haverford College
Students developed an individual approach to photography. Work was critiqued weekly to give critical insights into editing of individual projects and the use of the appropriate photographic materials in analog or digital formats necessary to give coherence to that work. Students photographed in 35mm and medium format.
Final project was 24 prints, either matted and stored in handmade archival box or bound in handmade book along with artist statement.
To incorporate audio recordings into her final project, I instructed the following Arts251B student in making a WordPress site. This was her first time working with audio and web formats.
