This course aims to introduce students to documentary photography. Students will become familiar with international documentary photography, both historical and contemporary. The course places special emphasis on personal documentary projects, with the goal of practical application of theoretical knowledge. Students will gain hands-on experience by creating a documentary photography series and presenting the progress of their projects on the web via the Instagram stream 'The Ballad of Quarantine' (@theballadofquarantine) and on their Flickr accounts. Those who complete the course will have significantly improved their understanding of photography as both a means of documenting events, and as a form of fine art. By the end of the course students will have improved their practical skills to the point of being able to pursue more advanced work in documentary photography covering a wider range of subjects.
