Learning About Meaning in Photography
This class will show you how to refine your use of the camera, compose thoughtful and thought-
provoking images, and make finely crafted exhibition prints. We will utilize digital cameras while
traveling through Rome and Florence during the first weeks of the program. After arriving at the
campus in Cortona, you will have access to the digital print lab as well as the b&w darkroom facility.
Throughout the semester, we will focus on the study of narrative in art and how photographers
construct personal and universal themes in substantial bodies of work.

Your grade in the class will be based on:
