PHOTOGRAPHY + COLLABORATION
NORTHERN ILLINOIS UNIVERSITY

ABOUT THE CLASS
"Photography is a product of an encounter and the start of a conversation." - Daniel Palmer (paraphrasing a quote by Ariella Azoulay)
This class will study and use photography for the unique ways in which the medium fosters collaboration. As an advanced level studio course, we will focus on the production of new, self and joint-directed works in photographic media with an emphasis on experimentation and artistic expression/understanding. By shooting photographs for projects, multidisciplinary research, visual analysis, vocabulary and artist-name acquisition, discussion, writing assignments, you will demonstrate knowledge of contemporary and historic photographic practices while contributing your own artistic voice to the cannon of photography as an art-form.
