ARTS.3982 Study Abroad / Photography in the Azores

Id: 042058 Credits Min: 3 Credits Max: 3


A photograph as a witness is the primary concern of this course. The meaning of any photograph is determined by several cultural, social, and historical contexts. This class explores theses issues through visits to local Azorean communities and with a trip to the Azores. Photographers are bound by an invisible social contract of either reaffirming or questioning the world surrounding them. During this course, students will consider the mythologies of hierarchy and objectivity permeating the concept of documentary photography. Social engagement through work with the local community will be a large component of this course.
