This intensive course introduces students to the style, form, and content of documentary photography. Students will learn the basic theory and principles of documentary photography through image-based lectures, hands-on shooting assignments focusing on local, national and international issues, critiques and group discussion with emphasis placed on the vocabulary of photographic viewing and thoughtful visual analysis. Field trips to New York City sharpen the student’s visual and critical skills.

Notes: Students must supply their own digital camera with manual controls and materials. A DSLR is highly recommended.
