Program Description:
VART 3500 Documentary Photography in Italy
Stephan Apicella-Hitchcock , Joseph LawtonRome

This intensive class will introduce students to the basic and advanced techniques of image production with a major emphasis on generating documentary projects directly relating to the people, architecture, and culture of Italy. The cosmopolitan city of Rome, rich with artistic history, will not only serve as the source of student photographic explorations, as well as the catalyst for discussions addressing the historical significance of the documentary impulse, but also as classroom space to focus on the course’s primary objectives: to provide students with an understanding of camera construction, camera usage, control image, image output, and most significantly the development of a personal vision. Participants’ studies and production will take them from the ancient architecture of the Coliseum to exhibitions in progressive contemporary art galleries. Students will utilize the wealth of visual stimuli as a resource, as well as backdrop to critically discuss the strategies that documentarians utilize in communicating their interests.
