Artist as Subject: Strategies of Self-Portraiture
How do we make an image of ourselves that moves beyond simple description? What elevates a self-portrait into the realm of narrative or universal? How can we use our own bodies to illustrate a concept or an idea? This class will help students answer these questions and more by studying the history and techniques of self-portraiture, shooting at home, and reviewing photos together.
We all have a story to tell, ideas and identities that are uniquely our own. Whether we are telling the story of one or many, we are our most accessible and agreeable subjects. The only requirement is a willingness to be vulnerable. This class is for those who are new to self-portraiture, as well as those who might need a push with current self portrait projects.
This class is strictly limited to 10 students.
