This course aims to combine the best aspects of apprenticeship, fieldwork, studio critique and classroom training, blending traditional approaches with innovation. Ongoing studio assignments broaden students’ approach and practice, with emphasis on the printing and final presentation. The course links photography to painting, jumping from contemporary images to futurism, cubism and surrealism. Students must provide their own digital camera with manual settings (better SLR cameras) and a memory card.
