MEDA 185 Lens & Body: The Portrait

As a type of image that proliferated with Enlightenment individualism, the portrait is perhaps the quintessential representation of the iGeneration (how often do you change your Facebook profile picture?). This course will address all kinds of photographic portraiture as we endeavor to think with our cameras and see with our bodies. Topics may include: the performance of identity; video portraits; collaboration; and photographic encounters with the "other."
