Photographic Projects in Rome (Selected Topics – CNPH-30200)
June 20-July 19, 2009
Instructor: Nick Muellner

Informational Meeting: Thursday, January 29th, 12:10 - 1:00 pm, Park 281

Course Description: This program provides students with an opportunity to continue their photographic work in the rich cultural setting of Rome. The course takes advantage of this setting as the starting point for several short exercises and one more extended individual project. Students will study and apply both spontaneous and more deliberate image-making practices in exploring what it means to experience, comment on and photographically interpret this place. Participants will also, and most importantly, pursue their own on-going interests within the framework of this culture’s distinct visual vocabularies. Includes a two-night trip to Venice to visit the Venice Biennale – the largest and most important international contemporary art exposition in the world. Prerequisite: participants must possess a sound knowledge of basic photographic techniques.
