  • Description

    Plate to Pixel is a photography course that will guide students through a range of historical, contemporary and experimental techniques as well as theoretical topics. The course will focus on the relationship between analog, digital and hybrid forms of photography. Students will produce a body of dynamic images utilizing technologies as varied as handmade cameras, classic film cameras, scanners and digital cameras. Through these photographs, we will consider the ways in which these images represent the world around us. Studio assignments and selected readings will explore the role of the photograph as the conveyor of truth, courier of deceit, creator of fantasy and unique cultural object. Students will explore the photographic approaches of sequence and series, employing models of repetition, montage, collaboration, narrative and chance in the projects. Technical instruction will be given in camera-less photography, 35mm film processing and printing, studio lighting, digital scanning, digital camera operation, Photoshop editing, inkjet printing and bookmaking. Emphasis will be put on technical and formal hybridity and experimenting with form to produce meaning through the photographic medium.
