PPS 184S – The Photographic Essay
This seminar will examine the ways in which particular photographers have created photographic essays that communicate to a wide audience. Students will study the classic and contemporary masters of this form while creating their own photographic essays. Students will learn to choose, sequence, and pace images according to the format of their final presentation (book, magazine, exhibition, and web-based). Three assigned projects to be completed by students during the semester as well as one final project combining images from these three essays.
