Landscape: Photography & Geog.

Landscape: Photography and Geography
In this course we will examine the influence of concepts closely associated with geography—space, place, and landscape—on landscape photography. We will explore how these concepts are used in photography to analyze changes in the environment, such as the impact of climate change. Students will read and discuss geographical theory, examine and critique the work of landscape photographers, produce their own photos, write analytical papers, and view and critique films. The class will include a weekly lab and culminate in a public exhibition of student photos at a local venue. Each student will be required to contribute $50 towards the cost of materials.
