ART 1130 - Selfies, Posts, and Fading Paper: Our Family Album

Photography is a tool to document our existence. Photos say, “this is me, my body, my family, my home, my experiences. Let me record and remember. Let me share. Here I am.” This is part of what makes up an album–a photographic record of looking, sharing, and remembering–made from close members in our community, our family. This class focuses on the power of the photograph to share the personal. This class engages in reflective writing and creative sharing based on vernacular images and their uses in art and culture.
